Rain has been so heavy in southwestern Ontario’s Middlesex County, a state of emergency has been declared, and some roads in the City of London have been closed because of flooding.

A statement issued by Middlesex County says upwards of 100 millimetres of rain had fallen over 24 hours and many roads are underwater and in danger of washouts.

Making the situation worse, an additional 20 to 40 millimetres of rain is expected through the day Thursday.

Residents there are urged to not drive through water or in areas where the road is not visible because this could be extremely dangerous.

“We are asking all residents of Middlesex County to stay at home until conditions improve,” said Warden Cathy Burghard-Jesson.
