It’s difficult to imagine the scale of flooding when you are on the ground. These photos, captured by local resident Dan Pinckard, show the extent to which the Muskoka River has swelled beyond its banks in downtown Huntsville.
Almost all of Brendale Square as well as the south end of John Street and the west end of Cann Street are under water.
Pinckard took the photos on the morning of April 24, 2019 using a drone.
Despite a drop in water flow at a gauge on the Big East River at Williamsport Road, which usually means the water level will recede in downtown Huntsville within 72 hours, the flood waters have continued to rise.
Many long-time Huntsville residents are saying this is the worst flooding they’ve seen in the area.
Pinckard also capture these photos of the Hutcheson Beach area and Lake Vernon:
The Town of Huntsville released a statement today notifying residents that waters will continue to rise for the next several days, more slowly in the town core and rapidly in areas to the south. Read the full details here.
