Conservation Halton is warning area residents that some localized flooding may occur over the next couple days due to heavy rainfalls in southern Ontario. A large weather system that hit the region Wednesday evening is expected to continue into today (Friday). It is predicted that as much as 50-75mm of rain may fall. The rain, in combination with relatively moist soil conditions, is anticipated to result in streams, throughout local watersheds, overflowing their banks, with a potential for some localized flooding in low-lying areas. The high water levels in all local stream systems are anticipated to last into tomorrow (Saturday). The heavy rainfall will result in dangerous conditions along all streams. Please alert any children under your care to these dangerous conditions and supervise their activities.
