HUNTSVILLE, Ont. — Central Ontario communities hit hard by flooding are hoping the worst is now over, and that the job of repairing the extensive damage can soon begin.
Seven communities in Ontario cottage country declared states of emergency as they grappled with flooding that submerged roads and forced dozens of people to evacuate waterlogged homes.
Huntsville Mayor Claude Doughty says he hopes the floodwaters crested last night and that the situation will stabilize.
