VIENNA - The Long Point Region Conservation Authority has issued a Flood Warning for the Vienna area in the Big Otter Creek watershed.
Watercourse levels across LPRCA remain high and are running swiftly. In many cases watercourses are still exceeding their banks and flooding low-lying areas. Most watercourses appear to have peaked and are declining, however the lower parts of Big Otter Creek and Big Creek are still rising.
In Tillsonburg, water levels on Big Otter Creek have declined since peaking last evening. Further downstream, water levels continue to rise in the community of Vienna and are approaching Stage 1 flood levels. It is expected that water levels in Vienna will peak sometime between this afternoon and early morning tomorrow. Levels are expected to remain lower than the levels seen in February 2018. Bayham Flood Coordinators are requested to closely monitor conditions in Vienna and low-lying areas.
