Atlantic Canada is in the midst of a three-day storm, one that is bringing heavy rain and strong winds. The large, lumbering storm system has stalled over the region.
Torrential rain has washed out and flooded roads in Nova Scotia’s Antigonish County, and forced the evacuation of a trailer park by boats.
Environment Canada had issued rainfall warnings for much of the province. In Antigonish County, the forecast said 120 mm of rain could fall, and possibly 150 mm in “isolated areas of heaviest rain.”
A state of emergency was declared in Inverness and Victoria counties in Nova Scotia as heavy rains caused substantial flooding.
