Twenty cars were caught in the ice following a flash flood in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
During the night of Friday to Saturday, a flood took by surprise the small municipality. Twenty cars were surrounded by water that quickly froze.
“It happened like a freight train – all that water coming from nowhere. I put on my boots as fast as I could and tried to get out [my truck], but it was already too late, “Pete Norman told CTV News, whose vehicle was submerged.
“There was a lot of water, with slush and ice,” added Felipe Gougeon, who was able to recover his car, even though it was damaged by the flood.
The City has indicated that it intends to continue cleaning and de-icing on Monday. She has also banned access to parking, fearing that a second flood will occur due to a storm that could leave up to 60 mm of rain, according to Environment Canada.
