With 35 to 40 millimetres expected to fall from today until Friday, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry have updated their flood outlook for the area.

They say that with the snow continuing to melt the water levels are rising in the area. The MNRF says that the flows on the York River are rapidly rising which will likely start to impact some properties before the weekend.

Most lakes on the Gull River and Burnt River remain below average but are beginning to rise because of the melting snow.

They suggest residents keep a close eye on conditions, regularly check for updates and be cautious near fast-moving rivers and streams. The MNRF adds that appropriate actions should be taken by anyone living in an area with historic susceptibility to flooding.
