Flood Watch Termination
The Hamilton Conservation Authority is advising that the Flood Watch issued on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 is now terminated. This flood watch had concerned the potential for flooding and/or high water levels in area watercourses, due to thunderstorms that were occurring at that time over the City of Hamilton.
Water levels in area watercourses are receding towards normal conditions. Although water levels are presently elevated in some watercourses, the levels are not expected to pose a flooding concern at this time.
Due to the elevated water levels in some watercourses, it is advised that people and pets continue to keep away from area watercourses as fast moving water and slippery banks may pose a significant hazard.
