There’s still little relief for many areas reeling from this week’s heavy rainfall and high water levels.

The Grand River Conservation Authority says a flood warning remains in effect for the southern Grand River watershed and Eramosa River.

Small ice jams are in place along the Eramosa River, and river flows remain extremely elevated.

As a result, a flood warning is still in place for Cambridge, Puslinch, Wellington County, Woolwich, Brantford, Six Nations, Haldimand County, and Dunnville.

A flood watch remains in effect for Wilmot, New Hamburg, Grand Valley, Mapleton, Blandford-Blenheim, Brant County, Ayr and all of North Dumfries.

The flooding has also resulted in a number of road closures.
