Sun finally shines in flooded areas

Tusket River Bridge, NS 10 Nov 10 (CP)

Most evacuees have returned home and many states of emergency ended as water levels dropped in flooded southwestern Nova Scotia – one of the areas seriously damaged by days of record-breaking rainfall in the Maritimes. 

Flood officials were worried about dams in the area, including the Vaughn Lake Dam on the Tusket River but the dams held up.

In southern New Brunswick, especially near the Bay of Fundy, some roads or parts of roads were washed out and are being repaired.

Rain totals have been staggering over the past few days in the region:

Mechanic Settlement, NB (near Sussex)  340 mm (new record)

Yarmouth, NS  220 mm

Saint John, NB  180 mm

Moncton, NB  158 mm (monthly record 167 mm)
