Waters recede, streets reopen after storm surge in Quebec City area

Waters are receding and streets closed by flooding have reopened in the Quebec City area after a storm surge Friday morning.

Strong winds at high tide helped push the St. Lawrence River over its banks near Dalhousie Street for a second day in a row Friday morning, closing the street to traffic.

Environment Canada had a storm surge warning in effect for Quebec City, Lévis, Côte-de-Beaupré, Île d'Orléans and the Bellechasse area.

The warning was lifted around 10 a.m.

The high waters on the St. Lawrence also delayed ferry service.
