A rainfall warning put in place Tuesday night for parts of northern Alberta has been dropped.
Just after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, the weather agency issued the rainfall warning for parts of Wood Buffalo, Lac La Biche County and the M.D. of Bonnyville and said there was the potential for localized flooding in low-lying areas.
The warning was dropped by Wednesday morning.
“Heavy rain is currently falling along the Alberta-Saskatchewan border,” the agency said on its website Tuesday. “Reports in the area have indicated that 50 to 100 millimetres of rain has fallen today, with localized flooding in some areas.
“The area of rain is expected to slowly move northeastward as the evening progresses.”
Environment Canada cautioned drivers not to drive through water on roads because “even shallow, fast-moving water across a road can sweep a vehicle or a person away.”
