With 25-to-50 mm of rain falling in the watershed since Saturday and forecasters calling for another 50-to-75 over the next few days, the Grand River Conservation Authority has issued a flood watch. The GRCA says the ground conditions are saturated and have limited ability to absorb more rainfall and whether flooding occurs depends on the amount of rainfall and how fast it comes down.
The major reservoirs are within their normal operating ranges for this time.
Drayton and Grand Valley are among the most susceptible communities. as well as low lying areas.
And the usual safety reminders from the GRCA: use caution around water bodies, and stay away from the banks of creeks and rivers. Also, parents are encouraged to keep children and pets away from all watercourses.
