Another 30 millimeters of rain is forecast to fall in Lunenburg and Queens counties. It's putting the Lunenburg County Regional Emergency Management Organization on watch for potential flooding. The group reports 96 millimeters of rain has fallen along coastal areas of the two counties since Saturday night. Spokesperson John Collyer says the LaHave River should have room to absorb the rain.

Collyer says people should be prepared as best they can for potential flooding. Rainfall and freezing rain warnings have been issued by Environment Canada for Lunenburg County. The weather agency has also issued rainfall warnings for Queens.
