Edmonton courthouse floods amid rainfall warning

The mops and buckets are out in full force at the Edmonton Law Courts Thursday morning, where water was flooding the cafeteria and pedway under the downtown building at 1A Sir Winston Churchill Square. 

Buckets dotted the pedway hallway and water could be seen pouring from the ceiling. It was a similar scene in the cafeteria, where cleaning crews were working to sop up the mess.

A rainfall warning has been in effect in Edmonton for two days due to a long episode of heavy rain.

Total rainfall amounts of 50 to 80 mm are expected, and Environment Canada said the heaviest rain will end in Edmonton later Thursday morning with western regions ending on Friday.
