Severe storm impacts SE NB

A light show over Moncton 09 June 11 (TWN)

A severe thunderstorm caused some localized flooding in Greater Moncton last night but public works officials say no major problems have been reported.

Environment Canada had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Southeast New Brunswick last night after a brief storm rolled though the region.

About 22 mm of rain was recorded at the Greater Moncton Airport.

Some areas lost power as well due to high winds and lightning strikes.

NB Power says at the peak outage earlier today, more than 3,000 customers in Kent County were in the dark.

The outage forced the closure of two schools in St. Louis-de-Kent today.
