Toronto and Region Conservation advises that Environment Canada is forecasting additional thunderstorms and showers for the Greater Toronto Area, which may produce considerable amounts of precipitation. Showers are expected to continue throughout this afternoon.
The forecasted rainfall may 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 Thursday, August 2, 2012. For more information please contact the on-call Flood Duty Officer at 416.661.6514.
