Flood Outlook

A Level 1 Flood Outlook is currently in effect for the City of Mississauga. The forecast calls for 30 to 60 mm of rain over the next few days with higher amounts possible in isolated areas. There is a level of risk identified in some areas of Mississauga including Cooksville and Lisgar.

Thunderstorms associated with this event are possible and may produce an additional 5 to 10 mm of rain in isolated areas. Temperatures will range from single digits above freezing to the upper-teens. Most of our watercourses have recovered from the rain event that occurred over the past weekend.

Some minor flooding in low-lying areas along the Credit River and its major tributaries may occur with the forecasted rain. Heavy downpours associated with thunderstorms may cause flooding in highly urbanized areas.

All residents, especially children are advised to keep a safe distance from all watercourses and structures such as bridges, culverts and dams. Elevated water levels, fast flowing water, and slippery conditions along stream banks continue to make these locations extremely dangerous. Please alert children in your care of these imminent dangers.

To report flooding, please call 3-1-1.

You can help by:

  • Reporting trees or branches on electrical wires or power outages to Alectra @alectranews or by visiting Alectra online
