The worst rains in 50 years in Nova Scotia (Canada) leave at least two dead

two people have died and two others are still missing after the “heaviest” rains in Nova Scotia, Canada, in the last 50 years, Prime Minister Tim Houston reported on Monday citing Reuters.

Initially, Police confirmed the death of a 52-year-old man whose disappearance had been reported after their car submerged and later reported that they had found a second body that, most likely, it belonged to one of the four disappeared.

“I want to send my sympathies to the families and friends of the two missing people who died in the flooding,” Houston said in a statement.

The rains began on Friday and in several cities fell in just 24 hours which normally corresponds to three months. The floods washed away roads, inundated buildings and damaged bridges and a railway line. Although part of the damaged infrastructure has already been restored, there are still fixes that will be delayed.

This weekend, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to Houston to let him know that the government “stands ready to offer additional assistance.” “We are here to help you. We will contribute resources to help with evacuations, and we stand ready to provide any additional federal resources that are needed,” Trudeau wrote on his Twitter profile. “Please stay safe, everyone,” he added.
