Staying safe around Muskoka area rivers means respecting conditions during heavy rainfall
Warm temperatures and heavy rain can mean dangerous waterways.
In Muskoka, currents and changing conditions cause the water surrounding all dams and hydroelectric stations to be hazardous.
Lakeland Holdings CEO Chris Litschko says extra care needs to be exercised as potential flooding makes all rivers and streams more threatening.
He also says avoiding these waterways is the best way of staying safe.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has released a flood outlook, which means there is a potential for flooding in the area. The outlook is in effect for the Muskoka district until Tuesday, February 27th.
