Record breaking rainfall in Greater Moncton

The rainiest December day ever occurred in Greater Moncton yesterday with an astounding 122 mm which easily beats the old record of 34 mm from 1975 according to Environment Canada.

With another 20 mm today that means three months worth of rain has fallen in Southeast New Brunswick over the past couple days.

More than 60 roads in the province have either had severe flooding or washouts and dozens of homeowners in Moncton reported flooding with a number of major arteries closed due to floodwaters.
