April 21, 2011 — The combination of recent rainfall and snowmelt in eastern Ontario forced authorities to issue a flood advisory.

Conservation authorities in eastern Ontario are keeping a close eye on water levels. Wicked storms that roared across the region on Wednesday added to the instability at certain watersheds.

Flood advisories have been issued in both the Crowe Valley north of Belleville and the Lower Trent Conservation. Officials say water levels are rising after the recent heavy rainfall and snowmelt.

As we head into the Easter long weekend, emergency officials encourage residents to be careful around waterways. The banks are currently soft and slippery, making it easier for anyone to fall in.

Another system that's brewing south of the border is set to move in on Friday night and is bringing more rain to the area through the weekend.
