When it rains it pours…

A fall rainstorm has caused flooding in parts of the Maritimes and has delivered more precipitation in one day than some communities get during the entire month of October.

A record dating back more than 50 years was shattered in Moncton yesterday when 56.6 mm of rain fell in the city.

The flooding was compounded when water was blocked from catch basins by recently fallen leaves.

Even more staggering amounts were recorded in Nova Scotia with more than 100 mm falling at Halifax Stanfield Airport – the wettest day ever in October.
