Flood Warning Currently in Effect for Mississauga
The city of Mississauga is advising residents to be aware of potential flooding today.
A flood warning has been issued in response to a forecast of 20 mm of rain this afternoon/evening, in addition to the 20 to 80 mm that fell this morning and and 5 to 25 mm from yesterday.
There is also a slight chance for a severe thunderstorm over parts of southern Ontario, according to Enviornment Canada.
Since the ground is already saturated, the additional rain indicates potential for flooding of roads and trails. The city has asked residents to stay away from streams, rivers and waterways as they can become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams.
To report flooding, please call 311 (or 911 if you require emergency assistance).
Stay safe, Mississauga!
UPDATE: Credit Valley CA reports that side trails at Rattray Marsh have flooded. Citizens are reminded to be cautious and avoid flooded trails.
