Communities in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are facing a costly and lengthy cleanup from widespread flooding damage after a storm brought torrential rain to the region over the long weekend. Premiers in both provinces are touring areas damaged in the storm. Cecil Clarke, the mayor of Cape Breton Regional Municipality, says many people will be needing disaster relief for damage to their homes. (Parts of the Sydney area received more than 200 millimetres of rain. In Newfoundland and Labrador, parts of the Trans Canada highway were severed by the storm. Both provinces say they'll be applying for federal help to cope with the damage.)
