Flood Watch in Effect

Posted on October 14, 2017

Sustained winds of 40 to 50 km/hr (with the potential for gusts from 70 to 90 km/hr) are predicted to start late tonight from the south-southwest and transition to west-northwest on Sunday through the afternoon and into the evening/overnight hours. During the predicted south, southwest and west winds, a possibility of flooding, shoreline erosion and damaging waves exists along the Lake Erie shoreline on the south and west sides of Pelee Island, the Municipality of Leamington and the Towns of Kingsville, Essex and Amherstburg. During the predicted northwest winds, a possibility of flooding, shoreline erosion and damaging waves exists along the Lake Erie shoreline on the
north and west sides of Pelee Island and along the Lake St. Clair shoreline in the Towns of Tecumseh and Lakeshore.

Flowing water, standing water and waves overtopping breakwalls can be extremely hazardous. People, pets and livestock should be kept away from areas of flowing water, standing water and breakwall/shoreline areas.

Weather forecast will continue to be monitor and updates provided as required.
