Brantford evacuates 2200 homes in Grand River flood crisis

It has been a crazy week of weather with flooding severe weather ice and snow

Governor Eric Holcomb of IN plans to tour flood-damaged parts of northern IN on Friday.

Flooding is possible along the area rivers and their tributaries.

"Water draining from northern IN and with the little more than 2.50" of rainfall here the past nine days IN Indianapolis, we are soggy!

Officials say they expect floodwaters to top Owensboro's downtown riverwall Saturday morning, posing only minor risks to mechanical equipment and marble paneling in Smothers Park.

Additional rounds of precipitation were expected Thursday through the weekend, which meteorologists warn could create additional flooding issues, with southeast Ohio and areas near the Ohio River looking to be the most vulnerable.

After a soggy week of weather, skies will clear Sunday.

No one has been evacuated in Haldimand as of yet, but county staff are making preparations if it becomes necessary as the water levels of the Grand River continue to rise.

With the snowpack melting and rain falling onto sodden or frozen ground, conditions were ripe for flooding to occur, especially with ice jams locked in place in communities, including Cambridge, Brantford and Cayuga.

At this point in time, Six Nations Fire and Emergency Services have visited homes from 744 West to Bateman Line to advise residents of the flooding and offer assistance with voluntary relocation.

With the rain falling slow enough, flash flooding is not expected.

"Stay away from the river - and that is not just for today or this afternoon or this evening, that will be for the next couple days at least". The Red Cedar River was forecast to crest at 10.3 feet (3.14 meters).

As of Friday morning, rainfall, heavy at times, was falling in much of Arkansas, keeping the threat for flooding high across the state. Several low roads in the East End are also flooded.

Paul Nancekivell said Thursday is unlikely the boy, who family have identified as Kaden Young, would have survived the night.

In Indiana, record-high flooding along the St. Joseph River closed down a waste-water treatment plant for several hours in South Bend, a city of about 100,000 residents.

Residents of a southern Ontario city were forced from their homes and businesses on Wednesday as rising flood waters from a local river prompted a state of emergency. Water may be deeper than it appears. "They told us they are there for us, whatever we need", Allen said, referring to information received Monday.
