More widespread rain across Durham Region and much of Ontario has residents and local authorities on high alert once again for rising floodwaters. In Clarington, volunteers gathered at the animal shelter yesterday to fill hundreds of sandbags. Officials say the lake levels are continuing to rise, and one of the main concerns is water eroding the foundation beneath homes along the shoreline. The Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority sent out a release yesterday saying that Lake Ontario water levels continue to rise, and have reached levels that are likely to result in flooding in low lying areas, due to static water levels and combinations of waters levels, storm surge, and wave uprush. Dryer conditions are expected for the weekend once the current weather system passes at around 10 o’clock this morning.
