Thunderstorms cause flooding-related road closures in Hants County

Thunderstorms rolling through Hants County Tuesday afternoon led to flooding on a couple of area roads.

Heavy rain and hail was reported through parts of the Ellershouse, St. Croix, Ardoise and surrounding areas Tuesday, leading to two flood-related road closures: Trunk 1, from Ellershouse to South Rawdon, which has since partially reopened, and Ardoise School Rd, which remains closed.

A number of drivers had to pull over on Highway 101 during the heavy downpours, with some describing it as the most intense rainstorm they had ever driven in.

Thunderstorms in the Fall River and Enfield areas also slowed drivers down on Highway 102 Tuesday.
