Twenty centimetres of rain fall on Novia Scotia in a day with more to come, but risk of dam breach recedes

The heaviest rains in more than 40 years badly damaged a city in Canada’s Atlantic region on Saturday but authorities are no longer concerned a dam may breach, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said.

The storm, which started on Friday, had dumped more than 20cm (8 inches) on parts of the eastern province of Nova Scotia by 8 am local time (noon BST) on Saturday.
