March 2003 Ends Like a Lion: Atlantic Canada's Most Expensive Rainstorm

A spring storm, which passed through the Atlantic Provinces during the last two days of March, left a series of damages in its wake. Heavy snowfall and freezing rain snapped power lines in New Brunswick and PEI. Heavy rainfall added to the spring runoff to cause flooding in all four Atlantic Provinces.

Bible Hill was one of the communities in Nova Scotia that suffered damages from the flood event. While most of the Village is "on the hill", a small section of our community is near sea level elevation along the Salmon River; and this area experienced severe flood conditions.
