Floods: the number of people affected continues to rise

As expected, the number of people affected has continued to increase in recent hours, but should stabilize soon.

Environment Canada’s forecasts report only relatively low and temporary precipitation for the next few days in the flooded corridor, from the Outaouais to Chaudiere-Appalaches.

Public security experts have been saying for the past few days that the peak is expected this Tuesday or Wednesday, after which water levels should stop rising and begin to descend, although this movement is already started in several places.

The latest report issued at 9 am Tuesday, indicates 1418 evacuees, 3152 flooded residences and 1869 isolated residences, that is to say that they are not flooded, but can not be reached because of lanes flooded access or landslides.

La Beauce remains – by far – the most severely affected area following the historic overflow of the Chaudiere River, while there are 867 evacuees, 1863 flooded and 80 isolated residences.
