No Local Flooding Issues

An official with the Essex Region Conservation Authority says water is high around the Puce and Belle rivers, but there’s no serious flooding concerns in Windsor-Essex.

A flood advisory was issued yesterday because of the potential for torrential rain overnight.

However, Tim Byrne with ERCA says the rain hasn’t been strong enough to cause problems.

Officials still urge people to stay away from rivers and streams because of potential dangers.
