Thames River flooding

by Allen_Woodliffe from Chatham CA on 10 Feb 2019

The Thames River, in southwestern Ontario, drains over 5800 square kilometres. Much of the downstream part of the river drainage is very flat. When there is rapid snow melt or lots of rain in the watershed, it can cause ice jams resulting in serious flooding problems downstream. This photo was taken on Feb 9, 2019, just a few kilometres from where it enters Lake St. Clair. With very little property damage this time, it wasn't quite as serious as the flooding of 2018, but there is still lots of time left.
