Canada flood: 6500 evacuated from Montreal and Quebec

Apr 29, 2019 19:26 IST

Nearly 6,500 people have been told to leave their homes near Montreal and Quebec as floodwaters breached a dike in rain-soaked eastern Canada. The evacuations came as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for increased measures to make the nation's infrastructure resilient to climate change. Around 1,700 soldiers have been deployed to the hardest-hit regions — and Montreal and Ottawa declared states of emergency last week.
