Updated: A gallery of the aftermath of Sunday evening's storm

Posted by Adam in Local Weather, 6/28, 10:55 PM

Brandon was on the receiving end of what it’s fair to assume will go down as an historic amount of rainfall early Sunday evening as part of a severe thunderstorm that rolled through the area over a nearly two hour span. Unofficial reports from rain gauges pegged total amounts in the city at between as much as five and six inches over that span. 

By the time the skies let up, the city was left with widespread overland and basement flooding throughout and residents and business owners dealt with the aftermath of the major rain event. 

Below is a gallery of a handful of photos showing scenes that were all too common in the hours that followed on Sunday. 

As I post this another Severe Thunderstorm was hitting the city in the after-dark hours, leading to a level of concern at what we will wake up to in the morning. 

Updated: June 29, 6:45pm. Added photos from around the city on Monday.

One of many downed trees/limbs

All too common of a scene on streets throughout the city, many roads being barricaded

Entire streets under water

many storm drains needed unclogging

Out for a ride

And a little more than that (submitted photo)

18th and Park was particularly inundated. DQ would still re-open Monday at 3pm no worse for the wear.

I caught the Sugar Bowl half drained out already.. pic still gives an idea of how deep it was initially

and it wasn't the only makeshift lake

Tubeing

More water than the system could handle

South end

About as much water as this ditch can handle

Vehicles on 26th street having to drive around a downed tree branch

Sports field at Queen E park on Monday afternoon

Gates to sports field. No pets in case you were curious :)

A truck in the field showing the water depth still in the area on Monday afternoon

Just off the Trans Canada Highway

At times a never ending parade of debris down the Assiniboine River

Makeshift lakes on both sides of the North side of the Daly Overpass

An uprooted tree beside 34th street

Essentially a fast-flowing popup river just South of the Waverly area

A large collection of water off of Durum Drive
