Large portion of Brantford being evacuated due to flooding risk

Officials in Brantford, Ont., have issued an immediate evacuation for a large portion of the city due to a flooding risk.

Brantford is located east of Hamilton and about 105 kilometres from Toronto.

Those who live in the areas of Holmedale, Eagle Place, and West Brant are being urged to evacuate. Police are going door-to-door to evacuate several streets in the affected areas.

Buses are being used to transport evacuees, and those who need shelter are being asked to go to the Woodman Community Centre.

Meanwhile in Cambridge, a section of the Grand River was jammed with ice, raising concerns that areas surrounding the river could be flooded. Officials say the ice jam has since been released.

Closer to Toronto, several homes backing onto a creek in a Mississauga neighbourhood were flooded on Tuesday night. Officials say the creek has been blocked with debris from melting ice and snow, causing the water to swell over the banks and flood into basements.
