Crews are working to address the impact of Tuesday’s heavy rain and wind storm.

The region was pounded with more than 200 mm of rain in some communities of Cape Breton which caused flooding and washouts in parts of Victoria, Antigonish and Inverness counties.

More than 25 roads in eastern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton have been severely impacted with washouts on the Cabot Trail, as well as some roads in northern Nova Scotia.

“If you can, please stay off the roads to help these crews do their work and to stay safe,” said Minister MacMaster. “Fixing the damage caused by this storm will be a big job and the Province will continue to provide updates as this work continues. I know Nova Scotians will do what they always do – come together, help their neighbours and get through this as a community.”

As of 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 24, the following roads and bridges are closed:

Antigonish County

Colchester County

Cumberland County

Inverness County

Pictou County

Victoria County
