Haldimand County Manager of Emergency Services/Fire Chief Jason Gallagher is urging residents to stay inside – and be alert if venturing outside – while high winds persist.
Winds of up to 100km/hr are expected throughout Haldimand County Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning. “Residents are reminded to stay inside if they are able to and to stay away from windows during the wind event. If residents must venture out, they should watch for flying debris, downed hydro wires, fallen trees and other hazards,” stated Gallagher.
The wind is expected to ease off in the early hours of Wednesday. “During this wind event it is most likely that Emergency Services will be responding to multiple calls. If you see or hear a fire truck or ambulance, please pull over to the right if you’re unable stop so we can maneuver around you and provide the quickest and safest response,” Gallagher added.
Residents along the lakeshore are also being reminded of the High Lake Erie Level Warning issued yesterday by the Grand River Conservation Authority.
