Canada: Flooding state of emergency in Montreal

Heavy rains and melting snowpack across Quebec have so far flooded 2,429 residences, forcing the evacuation of more than 1,500 people in nearly 150 municipalities. "It's very important to reiterate that".

Heavy rainfall has pushed water levels in the region's creeks and rivers over their banks and led to major flooding.

Resident David Swidzinsky has been ferrying neighbors to safety, or back to their homes to collect precious belongings that had been missed in the rush to get out when a state of emergency was declared.

"We are being ready to be responsive in any form or shape that is required to meet the task", said Brig.

At least 170 homes have already been evacuated and Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre urged residents to comply with evacuation orders. "If we start to see a drop, it doesn't mean the flood will go away tomorrow". Thank you to our firefighters, blue collar workers, white collar workers, police officers, district directors, those responsible for water supplies, etc. for your magnificent contribution, Solidarity and Professionalism.

But Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard warned the worst was yet to come.

"The single biggest issue emerging for brokers and agents is E&O liability,"Calamai, who's speaking at the Flood Risk Summit 2017, said".

"People are anxious about what will happen to their homes".

However, the prospect of financial aid is not enough - insurance brokers also have a crucial role to play in whether flooded Canadians get DFAA government assistance.

"Some people elsewhere in Quebec thought we were too fast because they didn't see what was happening here", he said. "That's why we're here".

Although Coiteux applauded the news that more help is on its way, he also had a sobering message for those affected by rising water levels in more than 130 towns and cities across the province.

The Canadian Red Cross has launched a campaign asking for donations for those affected by the flooding.

In addition to Montreal, eight localities declared states of emergency.

The federal government has closed all federal buildings in Gatineau, and told those employees who cross over into Ottawa to stay home today so as to reduce congestion which could hamper movement of emergency vehicles. Goodale was favourable to the request, Coiteux said.

The heaviest rainfall seems to have been in New Brunswick, where a weather station northeast of Saint John recorded 155mm of rain between late Friday and the early hours of Sunday.
