TUNE IN: Watch the Weather Network on TV for regular updates on this massive rain system, and send us your pictures and videos.


The Prairie provinces are stuck beneath a system that is drenching the region, causing widespread flooding and shutting down or washing out major highways.

Some communities have already seen 100 mm of rain since Friday, with almost as much set to fall in other areas.

Power outages and localized flooding have been reported. We've put together this selection of the best shots on social media.
