ABCA Warns Of Possible Flooding In Huron, Lambton.

Regional | by Peter Jackson  

Shoreline areas prone to flooding in coming days, due to snow and rain.

The Ausable-Bayfield Conservation Authority says minor flooding could become an issue in parts of Huron County, due to high wind, rain and snow.

In a special message released Monday, the ABCA cites the wintry mix as a factor in the potential for flooding of shoreline areas and possible bluff erosion problems.

The ABCA says waves coming in from Lake Huron will likely be higher than normal, because of the elevated lake level and wind gusts of up to 70 kilometres per-hour at times.

Conservation officials warn locals to stay clear of bluff areas, and stay back from breaking waves.

The blustery conditions that led to the statement are expected to last through Thursday.
