Major washout on Falconer Road in Notre-Dame, NB, 21 April 2014 (Facebook)

A blocked culvert on Falconer Road in Notre-Dame, a small community north of Moncton, finally let go Sunday night.

The result was a release of rushing water which swept away 50 metres of the road causing about one million dollars in damage.

More than 50 people were asked to voluntarily evacuate the area in anticipation of the culvert break.

No one was hurt and emergency officials say things could have been a lot worse.
