Flood warning for Muskoka-Parry Sound

Muskoka | by Bayshore News Staff  

Some roads closed, motorists rescued by OPP.

There is a flood warning in effect for Parry Sound/ Muskoka thanks to heavy  rain Friday and a significant amount of snow melt.
Some low-lying areas have flooded, including several roads.  The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry says banks and shorelines adjacent to water bodies are  slippery and unstable.
The warning will be in effect at least until Wednesday.

The flooding has prompted at least two road closures:

Muskoka Road 3  or Aspdin Road is closed between Hekkla Road and Gross Road in Muskoka Lakes township.
The OPP and fire crews had to rescue several people there Friday whose vehicle became trapped in the water.

There's also a washout on  Ravenscliffe Road in Huntsville. It's closed between  Tipper Lane and Rowan Drive.
