Thousands without power as post-tropical storm moves through Quebec
Storm moving toward New Brunswick through eastern Quebec
Heavy rain battered the province overnight as post-tropical storm Isaias crossed into Quebec, leaving tens of thousands of Quebecers without power.
As of Wednesday morning, about 46,000 Hydro-Québec customers were still in the dark, most in the Quebec City region.
The rain has eased up for much of the province, but a rainfall warning is still in effect for Chibougamau, where up to 25 mm of rain is expected to fall today.
Environment Canada meteorologist Jean-Philippe Bégin said people living in the affected regions should ensure their drains are cleared and consider avoiding driving while rainfall remains heavy.
