GRCA issues flood watch

GRCA issues flood watch”

More flood watches are likely to be issued this weekend as forecasters sort out the details of the storm, which has been hard to predict. The table below shows the total rainfall amounts recorded in selected stations within the two basins over the last one week.

The rainfall, combined with wet or frozen ground, is expected to result in elevated flows in rivers and streams across the watershed, Cam Linwood, GRCA communications co-ordinator, said in a news release.

Linwood said residents in areas typically prone to flooding should be aware of these conditions and take precautions. Conditions will be monitored closely through the weekend and updates will be issued as necessary.

Following the rains that were recorded in the basins in the last two weeks, the river levels along the two rivers rose significantly and are now slightly above normal levels at this time of the year. Parents are encouraged to keep their children and pets away from all watercourses.

The National Weather Service has issued its first flood watch for the weekend in anticipation of heavy rain falling this weekend. The watch will be in effect from 7 am Monday until 6 pm Tuesday.
