A rapidly developing emergency is taking hold in southwestern Ontario. The rise in temperatures over the past two days has caused a huge melt-off of snow combined with heavy rain has created a flooding emergency. The city of Brantford where I live has declared a state of emergency and has issued evacuation orders for a huge swath of the city. All bridges over the Grand River are either flooded and closed or closed due to imminent flooding. Ice jams from the river are being drive higher and further into flood planes by the rising water.

I am not yet under evacuation order - my house is on high ground outside the immediate flood plane but I am ready to go on a few moments notice with a BOB packed and ready, my important documents and ID along with extra cash and things for my dog.

I hope everything works out for you. Just a helpful hint toilet paper is an essential. I assume you have all the other necessities but people often forget this.

Evacuation orders have been lifted in Brantford by many bridges remain closed and the river remain way over it's banks. West of here in the town of Port Bruce, a bridge collapsed today due to damage from heavy rain and flood waters.
