My hometown of Truro, NS has been inundated with floodwaters today thanks to heavy rain and a high tide which spilled the banks of the Salmon and North Rivers.
More than 100 mm of rain fell in the Truro area in just an 18 hour period.
Floodwaters breached two dikes which forced the high school, Cobequid Educational Centre, and the Stanfield’s plant to evacuate.
Numerous roads were closed and some were even washed out.
Residents of a low-lying mobile home park in neighbouring Bible Hill also had to be evacuated.
More rain is expected to fall as Hurricane Leslie brushes eastern Nova Scotia on its way to Newfoundland.
