More than 1,700 households in the southwestern Ontario communities of Windsor, Tecumseh and Lakeshore have been damaged – due to a vicious rainstorm that began Wednesday night.

Tecumseh Mayor Gary McNamara declared a state of emergency on Thursday – saying 10 per cent of households in his town were affected by rain.

He said today that all pumping equipment in town was working at capacity – but the rain was too much to handle for any drainage system – dealing with close to 200 millimetres of rain within 15 hours.

Windsor also declared a state of emergency on Thursday saying it needed to get access to support from higher levels of government.
