On this day in 2001, the "worst flooding in 100 years" occurred in St. John's
Friday, September 19, 2014, 10:49 AM -
In September, 2001, the remnants of Hurricane Gabrielle passed southeast of Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula.
Although it had weakened to a post-tropical storm, it still brought hurricane force wind gusts and dumped flooding rains on parts of the province.
The storm produced record rainfall that caused what was described the "worst flooding in 100 years" in St. John's.
Several roads and houses were flooded in the region.
The extratropical remnants of Gabrielle continued to the northeast and dissipated on September 21.
