Still more snow to melt causing flooding concerns in Parry Sound

A flood warning remains in effect for the Parry Sound District.  The Ministry of Natural Resources says residents within the Parry Sound-Muskoka area are advised that some additional or prolonged flooding will occur within known flood-prone areas of many rivers and lakes.  A significant amount of the remaining snowpack has melted in recent days due to warm air temperature and rainfall, increasing the runoff into local river systems.  A significant amount of snow still remains within local watersheds at higher elevation areas and forecasted temperatures and rainfall will continue to melt the remaining snow pack with continued runoff into local river systems and lakes.  Residents may wish to take action to protect property in flood-prone or vulnerable areas while the MNR will continue to closely monitor the weather and developing watershed conditions and give an update on Friday.
