May 1, 2019

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Bay District, as of April 30, 2019. With the current conditions, the Municipality of West Nipissing has not declared an emergency. West Nipissing Emergency Services and Operations Team will continue to monitor thawing and water conditions in the area. The crews are patrolling at-risk areas daily and are assessing any weather changes that could affect water levels: precipitations, temperature, thawing, wind directions and ice conditions.

The Municipality is prepared to assist should conditions worsen. West Nipissing Emergency Services can assess and provide support on a case-by-case basis. If you are currently experiencing emergency-level conditions on your property, please contact us at 705.753.2250, or 705.753.1170 after regular business hours.

Residents should remain mindful of potential hazards and prepare their homes accordingly. Local suppliers such as Goulard RONA Building Centre and Home Hardware Building Centre have sand filling stations and sandbags available for purchase.
