The city of Montreal has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of heavy rain and flooding this weekend.\nThis announcement comes after several other municipalities in Quebec have declared states of emergency in the last week to combat high water levels. The federal government also mobilized emergency resources, including the army, to aid in relief and public security efforts.\nThough Montreal mayor Valérie Plante stated in a Tweet that "the number of evacuations is currently limited," she says the worst is to come "within 48 hours." It is thus important that Montreal residents stay apprised of potential updates and follow the direction of public safety officials.\nALSO READ: Environment Canada Report: First Tornado Of The Year Has Touched Down In Canada\nTL;DR The government of Quebec publishes information about the areas most at risk of flooding and the state of floods across the province.\nNos équipes sont mobilisées et en action sur le terrain.
