Flood warning in effect in Mississauga
Residents of Mississauga are being warned of the possibility of severe thunderstorms, which could lead to flooding.
According to a report from Credit Valley Conservation, the current hot temperatures will break tonight with the passage of a cold front which could result in severe thunderstorms throughout the night.
While flooding along the Credit River is not expected, heavy rain associated with thunderstorms could result in flooding of highly urbanized areas.
