Heavy rainfall from Thursday combined with melting snow and ice is keeping some areas of the city underwater.

“Runoff from the rain event on Thursday is working its way through the system leaving several waterfront communities still without access to their properties,” Patrick Larson with Rideau Valley Conservation Authority said in a statement on Saturday.

Larson expects water levels to reach their peak this afternoon.So far this month Ottawa has received more than 60 mm of rain, according to Environment Canada.
