Warning: Water level rising

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has issued the below Flood Watch due to the current and forecasted rain. Water levels within TRCA’s watercourses are rising due to the rainfall and there is the potential that water levels will exceed its riverbanks resulting in riverine flooding. Due to high soil moisture content in the region and the forecasted rainfall amount, all rivers within the GTA will be experiencing higher flows and water levels, resulting in hazardous conditions. Please exercise extreme caution around all bodies of water and avoid driving in low-lying areas and roadways particularly at underpasses, as well as the shoreline. Be alert for possible transportation delays and road closures.”
