Friday, March 15, 2019, 8:31 pm – The fluctuating temperatures have caused some flooding
The recent warming temperatures that have spread in southern Ontario in recent days and caused the rains have led to widespread snowmelting and flooding along the Grand River.
The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) has issued a combined Flood Warning / Flood Watch message informing the public that snowmelt snowmelt can flood low-lying areas that would normally cause flooding in the snow In the spring, ice congestion tends to occur in areas such as Grand Valley, New York, Brantford and Port Maitland.
Social media users posted videos about the flooding in New Hamburg, where a flood warning was issued.
The GRCA stipulates that the public should exercise extreme caution in all waters, as the banks near rivers and streams are slippery and children and pets should be kept away from all streams and frozen waters should be weakened.
In southwestern Ontario, weekend temperatures can be close to the time of year, which can help make the floods worse.
