Officials are warning Ontario residents to be ready for at least 72 hours without power and are predicting that some areas could see 50 + millimetres of rain and winds reaching 100 kilometres or more.

Please also remember that anything in your outdoor space that is not restrained and can be picked up by the wind should be put away. If you have not yet winterized your rain barrel now is a good time. Visit our maintenance page for instructions on how to do this. – Remember that rain barrels may burst as a result of expanding ice if not emptied and winterized.
Please stay safe.
