Emergency Services are currently securing large floating items from the river and lake systems and will notify residents at a later date when it is safe to retrieve them, according to the Town of Huntsville.

The town wants to notify residents that lake levels and river flows are expected to remain high while the most recent rain and snow melts into the watershed. Huntsville and Port Sydney area lakes and rivers appear to have stabilized, but residents will not see levels start to recede until this water works its way out of the river system over the next week, according to the town.

If you are in an emergency situation and need to evacuate, call 911. Residents affected by flooding who require other assistance can call Town of Huntsville Customer Service at 705-789-6421 x0. For flooding resources and sandbag information, visit at the Town of Huntsville website.
