The storm broke the 24-hour rainfall record and the area’s two-day record. There were rainfall warnings covering a lot of southwestern Newfoundland and most of them have finally ended. However, the massive storm left record-breaking rainfall and damage in its path.
According to Environment Canada, since Tuesday there were just over 165 milimetres of rain that fell in the town of Channel-Port aux Basques. The northern Codroy Valley was hit with rainfall totals of 195.6 milimetres. A helicopter had to rescue a pair of campers who got stranded by the rain.
The storm brought some road closures at the Trans-Canada Highway and roads from the Port aux Basques north through Codroy Valley. Rodney Barney from Environment Canada said the rain warning is over while a damp, showery day with low winds lies ahead.
