CVC is advising that Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for the southern part of the Credit River watershed (Mississauga, Brampton, Halton Hills). Torrential rainfall amounts more than 50 mm possible this afternoon into this evening.
While no flooding of the Credit River and its major tributaries is expected, there is a possibility of localized flash floods and water pooling on the roads and in flood–prone and low–lying urban areas.
Streams and other waterways could become hazardous due to slippery and unstable banks, and from high water levels and fast–moving water. As a result, streams and rivers may be dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts, bridges, and dams. People are warned to stay away from all watercourses and to keep children and pets away.
CVC will continue to closely monitor weather and water levels in the watershed. The Watershed Conditions Statement for Flood Outlook will be in effect through August 17th, 2022, or until further notice.
