--- Original Story ---

Due to flooding, the City of Kenora is advising residents that School Road, just north of the city is now completely washed out. Road crews are actively working on a new culvert installation to try to divert some water.

At this time, there is no access in or out of this area between the Hooterville Trail and Millership swamp until repairs can be completed.

The city says road crews are setting up barricades and signage for local traffic. They will continue to monitor the roads as the rainfall continues to increase water levels throughout the area.
