City of Toronto prepared to respond to extreme weather

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto warning of rain and strong winds, with the possibility of thunderstorms, followed by a drop in temperature. The City of Toronto remains prepared to respond to extreme weather.

Transportation Services staff will ensure roadways remain safe and passable for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians during and after any rain event. Right now, staff are proactively clearing debris from catch basins and monitoring roadways prone to flooding. In the event of a sudden temperature drop, staff and salting equipment are at the ready.

Parks, Forestry and Recreation has 55 Urban Forestry crews able to respond to fallen trees and branches. These crews prioritize safety hazards, blocked roads and assistance to Toronto Hydro. Additional crews will be on standby.

Toronto Hydro crews are prepared to respond to any damaged hydro infrastructure. To report a power outage, call Toronto Hydro at 416-542-8000. Anyone encountering a downed powerline should treat the powerline as live and stay back at least 10 metres and call Toronto Hydro or 911 immediately.

Residents are encouraged to secure loose objects in yards and on balconies. In the event of basement flooding, homeowners should contact Toronto Hydro at 416-542-8000 to shut off power and then call 311. Road flooding and fallen trees or branches can be reported to 311.

In response to COVID-19, Toronto Public Health continues to encourage all residents to stay home and avoid non-essential travel. Staying in is also the safest choice during periods of very strong winds and rain.

More information on special weather statements and warnings is available from Environment and Climate Change Canada at https://weather.gc.ca/warnings/.
