Flooding On St-Laurent Sends Water Rushing Through The Montreal Plateau (Video)

Videos sent to MTLBlog show intense flooding on blvd. St-Laurent. The exact cause of the floodingremains unknown at the moment. The flow of water down "the Main" appears to begin on the corner of Rachel and Saint-Laurent and continues down the rest of the street.

The flooding began at around 12:40, and it is still ongoing. Photo evidence proves personnel are on hand to deal with the situation. 

This video, submitted to MTLBlog by Instagram user @lorbeere_, shows a torrent of water rushing down the Main. From the videos, it appears that the flooding may have begun because of construction.

There is so far no indication as to when the water will stop.
