Fingers crossed that the forecast is wrong in Bracebridge

The mayor of Bracebridge says he's hoping tomorrow's weather forecast doesn't play out as expected.

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for the swath of central Ontario that's been struggling to cope with flooding in recent days.

Mayor Graydon Smith says 25 to 30 millimetres could fall on Bracebridge tomorrow, with the possibility of a little more rain on Thursday.

Smith says an additional 60 military personnel are coming to the region today to help with flood conditions, making a total of 160 soldiers in the area.

Four municipalities have declared states of emergency in central Ontario, while further east the Ontario government has activated Disaster Recovery Assistance for the county of Renfrew and the city of Pembroke.
