Huntsville is joining Bracebridge and Minden in declaring an emergency over rising flood waters.
The Town’s Emergency Declaration came as of noon Thursday, after Environment Canada issued a Rainfall Advisory calling for potentially 40mm of rainfall from Thursday to Friday evening.
The declaration gives the Town further resources in the event of heavy rain and increased flooding. Water levels in the Big East River are slowly lowering, according to the Town, while it continues to see rising waters and flooded roads south of Brunel Locks and throughout the Port Sydney area.
Bracebridge declared an emergency on Tuesday evening due to flooding, while Minden followed suit Wednesday afternoon.
