Warm temperatures and heavy rain can mean dangerous waterways.

In Minden Hills, currents and changing water conditions make the ice and water surrounding the Minden Generating Station even more hazardous.

Lakeland Holdings CEO Chris Litschko says extra care needs to be exercised as potential flooding makes rivers and streams more threatening.

He also says avoiding these waterways is the best way of staying safe.

A flood watch from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is in effect until February 27th.
