Post-tropical depression Erin interacted with an incoming low pressure system to produce lots of rain in the Maritimes.
Environment Canada says the heaviest amounts were recorded in northern Nova Scotia and the Annapolis Valley – Parrsboro and Greenwood each had more rain from this storm than all of July and August combined.
Some roads were damaged and even washed out by surface runoff or flooding.
Erin’s direct path along Nova Scotia’s south shore produced wind gusts up to 80 km/h.
The storm brought tropical air with a high of 23°C in Greater Moncton on Friday but a humidex of 32.
Rainfall totals (mm):
- Parrsboro 162
- Greenwood 127
- Kentville 115
- Summerside 67
- Fredericton 56
- Moncton 50
- Halifax (city) 48
