At least one vehicle was submerged by water late Friday evening in Chertsey, in Lanaudière, after the collapse of a road near a bridge.

Emergency services were called to this effect around 10:30 p.m. to Castor Avenue.

According to the municipality, part of the roadway on Avenue Castor collapsed north of the Gour Creek bridge, under the pressure of the water, swollen by the torrential rains.

The Sûreté du Québec was not able to tell the Journal if people were adrift.

“We ask the population to collaborate by avoiding going on site, which could greatly hamper operations,” the municipality said on social networks Friday evening.

“We are aware that several residences are isolated due to the collapse of the road, and rest assured that we are doing everything we can to organize the necessary relief,” she added.

Residents of the area in this situation are asked to contact 450 882-2920 to provide their contact details to the municipality in order to facilitate rescue operations.
