There’s a potential for flooding.

That’s coming from the MNRF – Pembroke District, who say that with warmer temperatures and significant rainfall coming our way, Renfrew County residents should keep an eye on watershed conditions.

They say that homeowners should make sure their sump pumps are functioning and secure items that may float away if water levels rise.

On the roads, they advise drivers to be cautious when using forest access roads. Same thing can be said for people participating in outdoor activities.

You should regularly check for updated messages and remember to exercise caution near fast-moving rivers and streams they say. This is especially important for households who have a history of flooding. For more information and to view the Ontario Flood Map, click here.
