Flood Watch 2009

ChrisD.ca received some photos and a video from readers wanting to share the water levels in their area.

Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson sent in these photos of Albany Street in St. James. Truro Creek spilled its banks and caused havoc to the nearby homes in its path. The City updated its flood forecast on Tuesday, but unfortunately it doesn’t include details on dealing with scenes like this.
