We’ll see rainfall all week for Haliburton County, so water levels will start rising. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to prepare your home if you’re prone to flooding.

You can start by removing items from your basement, and sealing up doors and windows.

It’s also important to make sure your children know the dangers of fast moving rivers and streams this time of year and to stay away from them.

Any updates on flood watches or warnings will be broadcast when they are issued.
