As we have all seen or read by now, Hurricane Matthew has hit a large number of communities in the province and brought heavy wind and rain to the island yesterday and overnight. Some parts of NL saw up to 150 mm of rain. The heavy rainfall has caused considerable sewer backup and flooding for residents in affected communities. Many areas have declared a State of Emergency and people have been asked to stay home as the storm damage is being assessed. We hope and pray that everyone stays safe.
