2202

THUNDER BAY – NEWS – Fort William Historical Park flooded last week.

NetNewsLedger reached out to FWHP for an update:

“Fort William Historical Park experienced flooding on its property last week. This flooding was due to high water levels in the Kaministiquia River. Water levels in the river and across the park have receded significantly since last week’s event.

“Park employees are now on site completing the necessary cleanup for the park to reopen. The park remains closed to the public at this time and farm animals have been relocated to higher ground.

“The park is working closely with regulatory authorities, including the Lakehead Regional Conservation Authority and Ontario Power Generation, to continue to monitor water levels across the region’s watershed. We look forward to welcoming visitors back very soon.”

A video has been posted online showing the flooding.
