The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department wants you to prepare for flooding. With the MNR’s flood watch in effect, Fire Chief Steve Hernen says all the conditions needed to make a flood happen are in the forecast. He says the snow packed areas are ready to let go with these warm temps in the next coming days. We are expected to get 45 millimetres of rain between now and Monday.

Hernen is asking residents in flood prone areas to secure and prepare your home. We will keep you updated throughout the weekend with updated forecasts and conditions.
