What was left of post-Tropical Storm Bill drenched much of the Maritimes especially near the New Brunswick-Nova Scotia border.

More than 130 mm of rain has fallen in that area since yesterday with flooding in the Sackville area and also in Amherst where a nursing home had to be evacuated.

Environment Canada reports about 65 mm of rain in Greater Moncton by late this afternoon with more than 80 mm on Grand Mahan Island.

Halifax and Charlottetown have each received almost 60 mm of rain.
