The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority warns that river flows can be expected to increase as a result of rain today and tomorrow. Waterfront in Kars, Fairmile, Rideau Glen and Becketts Landing along the Rideau River and Cedar Beach to Riverview Road on the Kemptville Creek remain at risk of flooding. No additional areas are expected to be flooded.

North Grenville Fire Chief Paul Hutt advises those residents experiencing basement floods to switch off the breakers that serve the basement at your electrical panel. Unplug any appliances in the flooded area and remember that gas-powered pumps can produce carbon monoxide so only use them in a well-ventilated space. Sandbags are available at the Concession Road garage if needed.
