We haven’t dried out from the last storm – and – we are about to be drenched again. Environment Canada has issued another rainfall warning for our area for tomorrow evening into Sunday.
Rain – at times heavy – is expected to begin tomorrow evening and continue into Sunday. Rainfall amounts are forecast to range between 40 and 60-mm.
Environment Canada is warning the ground is near saturation and has little ability to absorb more rainfall. As a result – the agency says we should expect significant pooling and runoff of water. The local heavy downpours could also lead to flash flooding and washouts near rivers – creeks – and culverts.
It’s not good news for areas like Sussex where residents are trying to recover from flash flooding brought on by record rainfall earlier this week.
