In addition to periods of heavy rainfall, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Georgina and Northern York Region that is calling for high winds today with occasional wind gusts of up to 80 km/h expected.
This will create an increased hazard as there are many damaged trees and limbs from last week’s ice storm.
The Georgina Fire Department reminds residents to stay clear of down power lines, as well as affected trees and surrounding forestry canopy.
The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority is warning that flooding in watershed areas is also possible. Please keep children and pets well away from rivers and streams!
We are assessing the town's yard waste collection needs resulting from the ice storm. We will provide details to residents regarding yard waste collection as soon as they become available.
We will continue to provide residents and businesses regular updates via news alerts on the Town’s webpage: georgina.ca, as well as through our social media channels: Facebook and Twitter.
We would like to thank residents and businesses for all their patience as crews continue to work to keep Town roads clear of debris.
