Rain creating hazards on roads, waterways

An Environment Canada rainfall warning remains in effect for parts of KICX Country - including all of Simcoe County. click here for full details. On top of all the rain we received early this week - Orillia weather watcher Dave Brain says the steady rain will continue today, tonight and tomorrow. Some parts of the region could see as much as 90 mm - which is close to four inches of rain before the system starts to ease off Sunday. With temperatures dropping there is also the risk of snow on the ground come Sunday morning, particularly in the higher elevations.

What does all the rain mean for us?

Drivers are being urged to use caution on the roads - keeping an eye out for ponding and pooling that can cause vehicles to hydroplane. Those planning on driving to Toronto over the weekend need to be aware that the city could be forced to shut down the DVP later today if the Don River spills its banks and floods the highway. Communities all around us are under flood watches and warnings as rivers, streams and even the lakes are all nearing critical high levels. Officials are urging homeowners to take necessary precautions to protect their properties, particularly those in flood prone areas. Severn Township is making sand and sandbags available for residents in three locations - click here for the full list. The Town of Gravenhurst has sand and sandbags available at the end of Joseph Place and at the municipal Public Works Yard on Crawford Road With cold water flowing high and fast, local conservation officials are urging people to stay away from slippery and unstable banks - and to keep their kids and pets away too.
