Water main break floods downtown

A water main break near the McTavish reservoir has flooded a chunk of central downtown. Roads are closed, buses are rerouted and McGill has cancelled all classes after many of its buildings were flooded.

CTV’s report has videos, and here’s a brief video on Facebook, but open to anyone I think, showing masses of water going down McTavish. It’s noisy. A view of McTavish from a different angle shows water cascading down to Sherbrooke Street.

Here’s another in which a student gets swept away while attempting to cross McTavish.
