For the third start to the workweek in a row, a storm is lashing New Brunswick – this time a Nor’easter with drenching rain, strong winds and pounding surf.
Winds up to 90 km/h, combined with a high tide and a full moon, have created a significant storm surge along coasts of the Gulf of St Lawrence and Northumberland Strait.
Coastal flooding and coastal infrastructure damage was reported this afternoon in communities like Shediac and Pointe du Chene.
Environment Canada says conditions will improve tonight after the high tide passes and water levels fall.
Meantime, winter officially arrives at 7:38pm AT.
