In the last ten years, the city of Windsor has been met with some challenging weather events, making us a city now prone to flooding. Our blog Which Residential Areas in Windsor are Commonly Hit by Flooding dives deeper into the areas of Windsor most at risk from increasingly frequent and severe weather events.
