Grand River could flood some Kent County basements, roads

Louisiana tornado damage

A weekend storm that brought heavy rain across eastern parts of Canada and the United States has led to two Ontario counties along the Grand River keeping their flood warnings in effect.

In Ottawa, rising river waters causedsome areas of Allen Park to flood, forcing the closure of the park to auto and foot traffic.

River flows in the northern and central portions of the Grand River watershed continue to recede following the record rainfall event that impacted the Grand River watershed for much of the weekend.

River flows in the Grand River watershed south of Caledonia are expected to continue rising Monday and peak overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.

Some communities in the southern section of the watershed, like Brantford, Six Nations and Caledonia, have peaked as well.

Former assistant GM Brandon Taubman , who made insensitive remarks to women reporters after the ALCS, was suspended for one year. The NFL took away a first-round draft pick and suspended quarterback Tom Brady for four games.

"Flows in the Grand River through Cayuga are expected to peak in the 1270 cm/s [centimetres per second] range around midnight on Monday", the municipality said in a statement. GRCA reservoirs on the Grand, Conestogo and Speed Rivers were used to significantly reduce downstream flooding during this event. Conway Park will be notified and this area will be closely monitored.

The GRCA says that plenty of debris, like trees and branches, was swept into the water, posing an additional hazard on waterways.

People are asked to stay away from all waterways due to "extreme risk", the GRCA said.

The Grundy County Emergency Management Agency reported that the Illinois River in Morris crested below flood stage at 15.7 feet on Sunday evening and was expected to fall to 14.4 feet by Tuesday.
