Gatineau Flood: Dramatic Footage As Creek Swamps Neighbourhood After Torrential Rains (VIDEO)

No Saturday morning should start this way.

Two days of torrential rain in Gatineau led to this “rude awakening” on the weekend for residents of the Limbour neighbourhood.

According to a Montreal Gazette report, a Gatineau road that was acting as a damn in an overflowing creek washed away, flooding the neighbourhood and bridges in a mobile home park.

The City of Gatineau evacuated residents on 14 streets.

A resident filmed the ‘inondation’ at 6 a.m. on June 25 and posted the dramatic video to YouTube.
