Environment Canada is forecasting the risk of thunderstorms for today into Wednesday. Scattered localized thunderstorms may bring rainfall in amounts greater than the forecasted 10-15 mm in some areas.
With watercourses in our area at already higher than normal water levels, local streams and rivers may continue to rise as a result of the additional rainfall. Watercourses will continue to be dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.
CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Flood Outlook Statement will be in effect through to Wednesday July 10, 2013 or until further notice.
For more information on this Flood Outlook Statement, please contact the CVC during office ours at 905- 670-1615. In the event of an afterhours flood emergency please call 1-800-215-8505.
