TRCA’s Flood Outlook Watershed Condition Statement – Aug 9 2012

August 9, 2012

 

Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting showers with a risk of thunderstorms for the Greater Toronto Area. Rainfall amounts of approximately 5 mm to 10 mm are predicted for today, 10 mm to 20 mm for tomorrow and an additional 5 mm to 10 mm for Saturday. Higher amounts may occur in localized areas as a result of thunderstorm activity.

The forecasted rainfall will result in higher flows and water levels in all our rivers and streams, creating dangerous conditions. Although the location and intensity of heavy downpours remain uncertain, areas affected may experience localized flooding. Drivers should exercise extreme caution and avoid driving through low lying areas and roadways, particularly at underpasses.

Please alert any children under your care of these dangers and supervise their activities.

This Flood Outlook – Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Sunday, August 12, 2012. For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer at 416.661.6514.
