It goes without saying, but roadways are messy thanks to the icy conditions. 

The weather plethora we've experienced this week is still causing flooding too, with a number of roads shut down due to water and ice over the road.

That includes Lisbon Road East in Wilmot, and the low level bridge through St. Jacobs. 

In Kitchener, a water main break has shut down Ottawa Street South from Kehl to Hoffman.

Crews are on scene, and repairs are underway. 

The entire Grand River watershed remains under a flood watch, while a flood warning is in effect for the southern parts.

Full details can be found here.

The worst hit is the City of Brantford though, as it has now declared a "Significant Weather Event" - meaning programs, services and travel are severely impacted.
