At 11:00AM this morning, the County of Lennox and Addington along with Greater Napanee, Loyalist, and Stone Mills Townships have declared a state of local emergency due to the severity of the continuing storm that is impacting our region.

This has been necessitated by roads and other critical transport networks being disrupted to the point that emergency services cannot effectively service the community, and the continuing extreme hazard to public safety.

Please stay inside to allow our emergency and essential workers to respond to this ongoing situation, and to reduce risk.

For more information, please access your municipal website, and the various social media accounts operated by the municipal emergency services, Environment Canada, and the Ontario Provincial Police.

We thank you for your cooperation, please stay safe.
