A flood outlook has been issued for the region.
The North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority says heavy rain over the weekend, paired with a forecast between 20 to 50 millimetres of rain today could cause some flooding in the area. They say that area waterways such as Chippewa Creek are most at risk because water levels are dramatically rising.
People in low lying areas are asked to keep a close eye on water conditions. The flood outlook will be updated at 1 PM today.
