MNR: Muskoka clear from flooding for now
It was an update on the potential for flooding in Muskoka. Yesterday, MNR officials sat down with Muskoka mayors to talk about their concerns. Dan Duggan, the MNR’s Parry Sound District Manager says the meeting reviewed watershed conditions and emergency preparedness. Several presenters attended, including Geoff Coulson, Preparedness Meteorologist at Environment Canada who says April is expected to be cooler than normal. Duggan says that was some of the good news, because floods happen when rain, warm weather and high volumes of water mix. Duggan says Muskoka has recently had some double-digit temperatures, but that it’s cooled down at night. He says that’s good news for Muskoka so far.
