Flood warning issued

Environment Canada has issued Rain Fall Warnings for our region including Grey Sauble watersheds.
Across our watersheds we have received over 50mm of rain.
The forecast is calling for the rain to end this afternoon. Several of our systems appear to have peaked overnight.
However, flows remain high with most flows still exceeding average spring runoff conditions.
A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire Grey Sauble watershed.
Flows are noticeably higher in the Sauble River, the Bighead River, and the Beaver River watersheds,
with flooding observed in areas along these systems.
A Flood Warning is in effect for the Sauble River, the Bighead River, and the Beaver River.
Municipalities, emergency services and individual landowners in flood-prone areas should be on alert.
Hazardous conditions may exist around all waterbodies, as there is a high risk of life-threatening
injury if a person falls into the extremely cold water.
The public and especially children are advised to stay away from all water-bodies.
Localized flooding may also occur in low lying areas that typically flood or are known to
be impacted by ice jamming.
Grey Sauble staff will continue to monitor weather and river conditions and will provide updates as
needed. A close watch on local forecasts and conditions is recommended.
