Sean delivers a soaker!

Flooding in Hillsborough, NB, 11 Nov 2011 (TWN)

Tropical Storm Sean packed a punch as it moved south of the Maritimes bringing strong, gusty winds and drenching rain – especially along the Atlantic coast.

In Greater Moncton, almost 50 mm of rain fell yesterday which led to pooling water on many roadways and winds gusted as strong as 70 km/h.

Winds were as powerful as 100 km/h in Nova Scotia and even stronger gusts were reported in the Cape Breton Highlands with numerous power outages.

Saint John was soaked by almost 90 mm of rain while Halifax was drenched with more than 100 mm yesterday – which is more than a month’s worth in just one day.

Rivers and streams swelled and flooding was reported in many areas of the region.
