The City of Corner Brook is taking extra precautions for heavy rain that has been forecast for the west coast of Newfoundland over the next few days.
Corner Brook has been forecast to get 40 mm of rain, and the Burgeo and Ramea area has been forecast to receive 60 to 120 mm.
City workers have filled hundreds of sandbags, and extra crews are on call in case the rain takes a toll on local roads.
"We do try and help out as much as we can," said Rayna Luther, the assistant director of operational services for the City of Corner Brook.
"Even in a rain situation, if there's water coming in, jumping a curb and they need assistance, our crews do help whenever they can."
Luther said Corner Brook residents should call the city's customer service line if they experience flood damage or water runoff on their property, so city workers can drop off sandbags.
Heavy rain, combined with runoff from melting snow, caused some Corner Brook streets to flood in April. In nearby Pasadena, the rain caused a section of the Trans-Canada Highway to collapse.
The province's transportation department has been put on standby to monitor Route 450 to York Harbour, where large boulders washed onto the road during that same heavy rainfall.
The York Harbour town council also has an emergency plan in place, should the rocks wash out the main road.
