Rigaud residents told to evacuate now, as flooding could be more severe than in 2017


"Almost all the houses that are near the water will be flooded or will have water [damage]," Gagnon said. Starting Sunday, areas hit by flooding in 2017, including Pierrefonds, Île Bizard and western Laval, could be in for more of the same. Pierre Brochet, the director of Laval’s police service, and Sandra Desmeules, Laval executive committee member in charge of public security warned residents Wednesday that flooding is on the way. Montreal has not given an estimate of how many residences are at risk of flooding, but it said the same areas as 2017 will be affected. The public utility is advising residents to cut off power to their homes in case of flooding.
