Spring Flooding Watch

A message from the MNFR on spring flooding conditions:

The latest snow survey shows a continuing deep snowpack in southeast/ southcentral Ontario ranging from 125% to 450% of normal for this date …The impact of recent warm temperatures and rainfall have compacted the significant snow pack, reducing its ability to absorb rainfall. Warm temperatures and precipitation are likely to further degrade the snowpack and river ice, and produce runoff and increasing levels and flows.

Stay informed! The flood map and local message updates are here.
