A main road for people west of Ottawa has been closed due to flooding following a severe thunderstorm Sunday.

Police closed Dunrobin Road to all but local traffic from Kinburn Road all the way to Constance Bay Road after heavy rain raised water levels of a normally calm creek.

Water that usually drains into Buckham's Bay instead washed over Dunrobin Road and the surrounding area.

While thunderstorms were seen across the region on Sunday, Environment Canada said a localized storm in the Constance Bay and Woodlawn areas dropped between 75 and 100 mm of rain.

Woodlawn resident Lynne Wilson, whose property backs onto the creek, said the water from the creek came gushing down making the water level several feet higher than normal.

"We couldn't believe it," said Wilson. "There was so much rain."

On Monday municipal crews were repairing 22 metres of Dunrobin Road, digging it up and relaying it.

Traffic coming from Constance Bay is being rerouted down to Kilmaurs Side Road.

The section of road is expected to be closed until Thursday.

Heavy rain also flooded roads in western Quebec. Highway 148 west of Gatineau was closed between Russell Street and Hammond Street because of damage from flooding.

Quebec officials said the flooding was caused after a beaver dam broke.

The highway was expected to reopen Monday afternoon.
