Heavy rain in southwestern New Brunswick is causing some isolated flooding.
It rained hard and steady in the area on Saturday and by late afternoon more than 50 millimetres of rain had fallen.
So much rain came down the city of Fredericton asked people to help clear out fallen leaves from sewer grates. Some basements have flooded.
"There's been a few, there's one where a culvert blocked and it backed up and rain went in one ladies basement," said Dylan Gamble with the city of Fredericton's Public Works Department.
Some city streets were covered with water but remained open. But the fall foliage that has spilled to the ground is a cause for concern.
"Leaves can plug drains, grates and culverts, things like that," said Sandy MacKinnon of New Brunswick's Emergency Measures Organization.
Clyde Bungay is the Sexton at the Anglican church in Fredericton. He said the rain woke him up Saturday morning and he can't remember this much rain. The baseball diamond across from his church is flooded with water above the pitcher's mound.
"Nothing like this no, not for this long," said Bungay. "The baseball diamond has flooded before but not to this extent."
Culverts in rural areas have also overflowed. That was the case near Saint George where the Old Saint Andrews Road was closed.
The forecast is calling for the rain to end by the end of Saturday. For next five days the forecast is calling for dry weather.
