FLOOD WARNING ISSUED FOR TORONTO DUE TO STORM, 10 DEAD IN US.
As a mighty storm is generating hazardous conditions in North America, the authorities in Canada have issued a flood warning in the Greater Toronto Area.
The rivers within the Greater Toronto Area will have higher flows and water levels due to the possibility of further snowmelt caused by above freezing temperatures in the region, which might result in hazardous conditions, said an advisory issued by the Toronto Region Conservation Authority.
The flood warning will be in effect until January 12.
The authority have advised the residents in the area to exercise extreme caution while avoiding driving on flooded roadways in low-lying areas and underpasses.
High winds were expected in Ohio and along the East Coast.
Kurt Van Speybroeck, an emergency response specialist at the Southern Region Headquarters of the National Weather Service, said, “In recent years, this is one of the stronger systems that we have seen.”
Residents from Cleveland to Western New York will be experiencing gusts up to 60 m.p.h. on early Sunday morning.
