The city of Oakville has announced more closures following the recent flood watch issued by Conservation Halton.
Residents should use caution around creeks, ponds and the lake where localized flooding and shoreline erosion have created dangerous conditions.
Lake levels are also higher than normal and some areas are prone to sudden flooding and ponding when heavy rainfall is combined with blowing winds.
Areas that are taped or fenced off may be unsafe and should be avoided.
