Canada: State of Emergency Declared in Montreal Due to Flooding

48-hour state of emergency declared in Montreal after torrential rainfall

On 8 May, Canadian authorities declared a state of emergency in the city of Montreal, due to widespread flooding following a bout of torrential rainfall. The state of emergency will remain in place for at least 48 hours. Flooding has particularly affected the city of Riguad, where mandatory evacuations have been ordered in flooded areas. Approximately 1,900 residences across 126 communities have been affected in Quebec. At least 1,200 military personnel are conducting rescue and relief operations throughout the affected regions.

Those operating or residing in Canada are advised to be aware of the serious floods caused by torrential rain. Residents or travellers are therefore warned to prepare for possible further flooding in the above-mentioned areas. Rearrange any travel routes to avoid the worst affected areas. Monitor local media for more information regarding the flooding. Follow all directives issued by the authorities and maintain a flexible itinerary until the floods pass.
