The wet and rainy conditions could lead to potential flooding possible in Brampton, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) says.
CVC says that Environment Canada is forecasting 15 to 25 mm of rain tonight and 5 to 10 mm of rain tomorrow, adding that soil conditions are saturated as a result of the 15-25 mm of rain that has been received yesterday.
“Flooding along the Credit River and its major tributaries may occur in low-lying areas if the upper limits of the forecasted precipitation happen,” CVC said in a news release.
“As a result, local streams, rivers, and shorelines could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges, and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.”
CVC says it will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels and flooding possible in Brampton.
The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook will be in effect through Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, or until further notice.
The public is urged to stay away from fast flowing waters. Here check what Brampton Govt. doing to protect from Flooding Possible in Brampton
