Alerts for: Shelburne County
3:33 PM ADT Friday 21 October 2016
Rainfall warning in effect for:
- Shelburne County
Heavy rain is expected.
A heavy rainfall event is expected over parts of the Maritimes tonight and Saturday. Current guidance is suggesting general amounts of 50 to 80 mm over parts of Nova Scotia, with the heavier rainfall expected overnight and Saturday. As is the case with most heavy rainfall situations, the total amount of rain is not necessarily the problem, but rather the rate at which the rain falls.
Heavy downpours are likely to cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Avoid driving through water on roads. Even shallow, fast-moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle or a person away. Don't approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NSStorm.
