Tory says industrial pumps are now removing 500,000 litres of water per hour from the islands, and thousands of sandbags have been set up along the shoreline.
More than half the buildings on the Toronto Islands are being threatened by rising water levels in Lake Ontario that have already closed the popular summer destination to the general public. Over 261 buildings or about 52 percent of the structures on the islands are threatened by the flood waters, while 40 percent of the Toronto Island Park is already underwater.
Tory has invited the media to join him and will address them at about 8 a.m., officials say.
"[Residents] are a pretty sturdy bunch but they nonetheless feel that all the plans have been made to make sure they stay safe, and that if it gets worse, they will continue to be safe", Tory told reporters.
Tory added that the closure of the islands to non-residents is meant to be a safety precaution.
20,000 sandbags have lined the shores and homes on the islands. City officials have canceled permits for all events on the islands until June 30, and ferry service has been restricted to island residents and staff until the same date.
It has said that water levels are not expected to return to normal for several weeks even without further precipitation. "We can't have people even where it appears to be dry walking around because there are buildings that are at risk", Tory told a news conference while touring the island.
The City has warned the Island may not open to the public possibly until the end of July as time will be needed to allow water levels to recede to acceptable levels.
