Ottawa, Apr 21 (Canadian-Media): Cities of Ottawa and Gatineau, are facing flood risks due to rising water levels on the Ottawa River, media reports said.
In the wake of the looming flood risk many residents of Ottawa and Gatineau are spending their Easter weekend preparing for the flood risks.
Ottawa River Regulation Board Planning Board reported this morning that water levels are expected to rise slowly and hit peak levels late Sunday.
Levels will remain high for several days with ongoing risk, but cooler than forecasted temperatures along with less than anticipated rain have reduced expected inflows in most locations, said Michael Sarich with the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board.
Given below is the list of where to seek assistance or help out over the Easter weekend.
