To add to that, it says moisture from Post-Tropical Storm Michael will enhance rainfall especially over southern coastal areas of the province where up to 35 mm more of rain is expected.
The weather service says heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads and localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

The suspect is described as a white male, in his 20’s, about 6 feet tall with a thin build and brown hair.
Police says he was wearing a black mask, black jacket and blue jeans.
