Kings REMO is advising residents living near the Cornwallis River flood plain of the potential for localized flooding as a result of recent rain and anticipated rising temperatures through the week.

Present water levels have nearly risen to the road in some areas of Brooklyn Street near Valley Regional Hospital, parts of the community of Meadowview between Steadman and Tupper Road, Cambridge Road near Ratchford Road and South Bishop Road at the Cornwallis River Bridge.

“While not yet at traditional flood levels, these areas could experience localized flooding, seeing water crest the roads into yards and basements,” said Kings REMO co-ordinator, Brian Desloges.

“Residents in these areas are asked to monitor rising water and take precautions if similar river conditions have caused flooding or other problems in the past. If conditions in the area raise any concerns, residents should inform town or county emergency officials.”

The Cornwallis River and Mill Brook systems are within their flooding capacity and discharging heightened water levels at an anticipated rate. Current flooding conditions are considered seasonal for Kentville and surrounding areas. Local officials will continue to monitor conditions and take appropriate action, if required.
