Napanee – Moving to the flooding situation in the Quinte region — and some good news today.
The conservation authority has removed “flood warnings” for its inland lakes and streams — but it remains in effect for the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario. You are looking at the raging Napanee River today. Quinte Conservation says while levels in area rivers have peaked. The levels in Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte will continue to rise as rivers like this one drain into them. Lake levels make not peak until July but the authority can’t predict how high they will get. Residents are still advised to stay clear of shorelines, because the water is still cold and fast moving.
“There’s just too much water. We just don’t know what to do with it at this point. I’ve been referring to it like Georgia when they got snow. They had no idea what to do with it, at this point we don’t know where the water is going to go.”
“Well it’s pretty scary. i wouldn’t wan to be coming down in a kayak. ha ah. yeah it’s amazing but scary.”
