WEATHER WARNINGS, WATCHES and ADVISORIES

Flood Warnings and Alerts

Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority

Flood Watch in effect

The water level in Lake Simcoe is expected to continue to drop over the week. There continues to be an increased potential for flooding of low-lying lands adjacent to the lake. The risk of flooding will be increased in localized areas due to wave action from winds.

The high lake levels will also continue to impact the dykes in the polder areas. Polders are low-lying lands adjacent to bodies of water and protected by dykes.

In addition, saturated ground conditions combined with the forecasted rainfall will result in increased stream flows. As a result, local streams and rivers may become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges.

Please exercise extreme caution around all bodies of water, streams and rivers. Alert any children and pets under your care of dangerous conditions and supervise their activities.

This Flood Watch will be in effect through Friday June 2, 2017.
