As the rain & wind pound Nova Scotia - Tens of Thousands without power
HALIFAX -- More than 41,000 Nova Scotia Power customers are without power as heavy rain and high winds pound the region.
Nova Scotia Power says the bulk of those outages are in the Halifax area.
The utility says more than 13,000 customers are starting the work week in the dark in the suburb of Bedford, while more than 11,000 are without power in Halifax.
Halifax police say traffic is being redirected on Lacewood Drive in the Halifax neighbourhood of Clayton Park because of a downed power line.
Investigators says traffic is also being redirected near Kane Street in the city's north end because a large branch is entangled in a power line.
Much of the province is under rainfall warnings.
Environment Canada says up to 70 millimetres of rain could fall in Cape Breton and parts of mainland Nova Scotia before tapering off later Monday morning.
The national forecaster warns that flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
