Spring flooding has damaged over 2500 homes and displaced over 1500 as rivers and lakes overflowed in the regions of Quebec and Montreal. The worst affected areas are the city of Sainte-Marie and Chaudière-Appalaches Region. One fatality was reported as a road was washed away causing a road accident.

The floods started by snowmelt and rain, caused the Chaudière, Ottawa and St Lawrence rivers to burst their banks bringing flooding to 18 locations. In worst affected areas up to 700 homes have been left isolated.

Many roads are closed and 100 people have been evacuated from Saint-André-Avellin and another 100 from Quebec's Beauce region.

600 Canadian soldiers have been deployed to affected areas to help shore up flood defences. Hundreds of volunteers and municipal workers are also working to protect properties.
