Post-Tropical Storm Soaks Province

Roads were closed, bridges were shut down for certain vehicles and thousands of homes went without power as post-tropical storm Andrea swept through the region, soaking everything in her path.

She dumped 57mm of rain on Saint John, brought 75 to Point Lepreau, while Grand Manan was slammed with 95mm. The Confederation bridge, linking the province to Prince Edward Island, was restricted to high-sided vehicles including tractor trailers and buses for part of the day because of the gusty winds.
