Areas of Huntsville, Bracebridge, and Gravenhurst remain under water today. Roads have been washed out, and closed. Emergency shelters have been set up for those who may need to evacuate.
Of course we needed to see what the fuss was for ourselves, (after all, our daughter lives in Bracebridge) so northward we travelled.
We travelled down a country road near Cooper's Falls, and were turned back by Police Tape. Several areas of this road were washed out, and a "local" told us that her husband had pulled out several vehicles that had got stuck in the fast flowing water that morning. How foolish to even try to traverse these deep flooded areas....
Find, below, pictures of the Bracebridge Falls. The parking lot across the river has been claimed by the flow, as has the picnic area in the foreground.
The power of nature never ceases to amaze me.
