Southeastern New Brunswick was drenched on Saturday as severe thunderstorms moved across the region.
Environment Canada meteorologist Claude Cote says 20 mm of rain fell at the Greater Moncton Airport but areas such as the Magnetic Hill concert site where Nickelback performed may have received double that amount.
“It’s typical of thunderstorm activity… and type of convection. Within 90 minutes, you can go from some sunny breaks to a good downpour. So it’s rather typical of July weather in the Maritimes.”
Cote adds some ominous-looking clouds and hail were spotted but there were no reports of tornadoes in the region.
