Rainfall warnings are issued for amounts of 25 mm or more in 24 hours or less when the ground is saturated or frozen. For the latest information concerning the potential for spring flooding in your area, please consult the website of your local Conservation Authority or the website of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
