As summer approaches, Toronto may be facing flooding. Lake Ontario has apparently reached a level of over 75 metres above sea level.
Therefore, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority has issued a hazard warning.
This warning applies to both the shorelines of the lake and the islands.
The TRCA states: “Properties along the shoreline and the Toronto Islands which experienced flooding during the 2017 event could begin to experience flood impacts as the water level in Lake Ontario continues to rise.”
Take a look at the ominous footage by Sylvie Lendvay of CHCH:
The warning is in effect until May 8th.
