Saturday after the Storm

Friday night had our region under the dramatic spell of severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings. As a result, some clean-up and some damage in the wake of the thunderstorms in the days following (no confirmed reports of Tornadoes according to news reports this morning).

Hikers in Dundas Valley should note that:
The Dundas Valley Trail Centre is closed with no power or washrooms. Downed branches and erosion on trails have made trail conditions difficult. Please use caution on the trails.
The Giant's Rib Discovery Centre is also closed today and the guided hike has been cancelled. (Hamilton Conservation Authority)
We hope people continue to keep the environment in mind as we make daily choices, especially in the ways we contribute to climate change. Hotter summers with extreme heat and more frequent and violent storms are forecast for the coming decades.
