Kingston – The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) advises that Environment Canada’s Weather Office is warning that potentially hazardous winds are expected in the Cataraqui region starting today.
Severe winds of up to 100 km/hr are expected beginning this afternoon/evening. The CRCA is advising the public to refrain from using the Cataraqui Region Conservation Areas as there is the potential for falling limbs and toppling trees.
High winds can produce larger waves which can cause erosion and other impacts along shorelines. The winds are expected to diminish by Wednesday.
Rainfall accumulations of up to 30 mm are expected in our watershed over the next few days. Since flows are currently low for this time of year, localized flooding is not anticipated at the present time.
This Watershed Conditions Statement will be in effect through Wednesday, October 31, 2012.
