The City of Kenora has issued an alert for all roads north of the Kenora by-pass as water levels continue to rise.

City officials have now issued a flood watch for Carlton Road, Anderson Branch Road and Peterson Road as city road patrollers are concerned with rising water levels in these areas as well.

Citizens should closely monitor the water levels on roads they travel in these areas, as the watch could be escalated to a recommended evacuation or evacuation order at any time.

The city states that Mount Evergreen Ski Hill will host campers, act as a place to store things, and offer assistance to evacuated residents.

Displaced residents can seek shelter at the Kenora Recreation Centre and sandbags are available at Fire Station 1.
