Historic flooding has caused widespread damage in Nova Scotia, leaving four people missing and thousands displaced.
The flooding began on Friday, July 15, when a slow-moving frontal boundary triggered heavy rain across the province. Some areas received more than 10 inches of rain in just 24 hours.
The flooding has caused widespread damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Roads have been washed out, bridges have collapsed, and power outages have been reported.
Thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes, and emergency crews are working to rescue those who are still stranded.
The search for the four missing people is ongoing.
The flooding is the worst to hit Nova Scotia in decades. It has caused an estimated $1 billion in damage.
The province has declared a state of emergency, and the federal government has offered assistance.
