Flood Outlook

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry – Sudbury District is extending the Watershed Conditions Statement - Flood Outlook for the French River, which will be in effect for the District until Friday, May 05, 2023 

Residents in the Sudbury District, including the municipalities of French River, St. Charles and Killarney, should exercise caution along local waterways. Local streams and rivers will see increased flows and higher water levels due to an incoming low-pressure system that will bring precipitation through the weekend and into early next week. There is the potential for flooding in low-lying areas, and residents may wish to take necessary action to secure or protect property in flood-prone or vulnerable areas. Please monitor any children or pets under your care around these hazards and supervise their activities. 

The ministry is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions. Further updates will be issued as appropriate.
