“All watercourses in our area will experience higher than normal water levels and flows,” the conservation authority said. “As a result, local streams and rivers will become dangerous, especially in the vicinity of culverts and bridges.”

The conservation authority said children should stay away from all watercourses.

Environment Canada said rainfall warnings may be required in parts of the area.
