Date Issued: June 29, 2021
Environment Canada has issued a severe weather bulletin for southern Ontario. Localized heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue into this evening. Rainfall amounts will be variable given the localized nature of the rain and thunderstorms. Total rainfall amounts of 50 to 75 mm are possible by late this evening with many areas expected to receive significantly lesser amounts.
Flooding along the Credit River and its major tributaries is not expected with the thunderstorms. Flooding in highly urbanized areas may occur with the heavy rainfall associated with severe thunderstorms. Local streams and rivers could become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges and dams. Children should be warned to stay away from all watercourses.
CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook will be in effect through Thu-Jul-1-2021, or until further notice.
