Heavy rain, leaves could clog stormdrains

Local

The forecast is calling for rain and lots of it this weekend, which means storm drains have the potential to become clogged with fallen leaves.

Municipalities were cleaning those drains on Friday to prevent street flooding, but public works can’t cover every single road, so they depend on residents to lend a hand.

Wet leaves, especially piles of them, is similar to shoving wet paper towels down a drain.
