Umbrellas and rubber boots have been a necessity for residents in parts of Nova Scotia this month. 

On average, Halifax normally sees around 100 mm of rain in September. This year however, the city has already picked up close to 350 mm so far. 

The latest bout of rain came from a low pressure system that stalled over the Maritimes for several days last week.

Before that, heavy rain from Tropical Storm Leslie brought between 50-100 mm of rain across the province. 

Water levels in the North and Salmon Rivers began rising near Truro, flooding towns and communities in the area. Work is currently underway to repair the flood-damaged berm that was severely breached during the storms.
