“Valley City” of Dundas hit by flooding from 75 mm of rain

The “Valley City” of Dundas has been flooded by the onslaught of rain estimated at between 60 and 75 mm which has spilled down the Niagara Escarpment overflowing the Sydenham and Spencer Creeks. Much of the downtown is under several inches of water, with the depth varying. The CBC says the rain clogged storm drains and triggered a mudslide and flooding on at least eight streets in the community. Calls about the flooding began coming in around 7:40 p.m. For a while the main road into Dundas from Hamilton, Hwy 102, was inundated and all traffic stopped. CBC
