Flooding on Pine Glen Road, Riverview, NB, 25 May 2016 (Facebook)


For the first time this spring, a series of thunderstorms rolled across New Brunswick with various watches and warnings issued by Environment Canada.

Greater Moncton received heavy downpours from thundershowers early this afternoon.

In many parts of the city, so much rain fell so quickly that storm drains were inundated with water causing localized flooding.

Riverview seemed hardest hit with flooding reported in Gunningsville, Point Park and West Riverview by mid-afternoon.

UPDATE – Although less than 10 mm of rain fell at Greater Moncton Airport, some backyard observers suggest more than 100 mm fell in parts of Riverview.
