You need to prepare yourself for floods in the next few days. With the MNR’s flood watch in effect, Huntsville/Lake of Bays 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.

A potential for flooding also exists within watercourses in Bracebridge, including the North
and South Branches of the Muskoka River and the Black River.
