Rainfall warnings issued for Ottawa, wider area
Rainfall warnings have been issued across eastern Ontario and western Quebec as downpours are expected to hit the region Sunday evening.
In Ottawa, between 40 and 50 millimetres of rain could fall by tomorrow morning, Environment Canada said in a warning issued Sunday afternoon.
Warnings were previously issued Saturday for places like Kingston, Napanee, Belleville and Prince Edward County.
In the Kingston area, as much as 70 millimetres of rain could fall in some places over what's become a multi-day weather event.
All that precipitation could lead to flash floods and water pooling on roads, Environment Canada said in its warnings. People should also be on the alert for washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
In Ottawa, the rain is expected to continue Monday morning before easing off near noon.
