Sections of streets in downtown Montague, P.EI., have been blocked off after they were damaged by heavy rain Sunday.
"I haven't seen rain like that in years and years," said Peter Metaxas, who had to pull over in his car to wait it out.

"The rain was heavy enough to move pieces of asphalt that probably weighed 15 pounds."

The streets will be blocked off at least for the rest of the day, said RCMP Const. Chad Cormier.

"The rain washed down from Main Street onto Patrick Street, and it looks like it might have gotten underneath the road and just wore it out and the roads caved in in places," he said.
