When rain has fallen in New Brunswick this summer, it seems to fall fast and furious like it did yesterday.
The hardest hit community was St. Stephen where a whopping 165 mm of rain came down in less than 24 hours – which is roughly two months worth!
Town officials say the amount of rain was close to being as disastrous as a flood in December 2010 but this time the downtown area was spared.
Heavy rainfall amounts were recorded right across the province.
Some totals from Environment Canada:
St. Stephen 165 mm
Fredericton 119 mm
Kouchibouguac 97 mm
Bathurst 84 mm
Saint John 78 mm
Moncton 41 mm
