Over 70 flights have also been delayed. Heavy rain is forecast to persist until at least Saturday, April 20.
Further flight and other transportation disruptions are expected in the coming days.
Individuals flying through CAN are advised to confirm their respective flight statuses, maintain flexible itineraries, and anticipate flight disruptions, including cancelations and delays.
Individuals in affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions prior to setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
