Relentless storm surge eases

Flooding Main Street, Shediac, NB 21 Dec 10

Environment Canada has ended weather warnings for New Brunswick which has been pounded by high winds and rain for much of the week.

The cleanup continues along the Northumberland Strait coast where homes, businesses and tourist attractions such as Parlee Beach, Pointe du Chene Wharf and Irving Eco-Centre have been badly damaged by a powerful storm surge.

Forecasters say more minor flooding is possible this evening during high tide.

The storm is now centred over the  Grand Banks of Newfoundland where it continues to meander very slowly away.
