Canada flooding situation worsens

Homes in the Montreal borough of Pierrefonds are flooded on May 8, 2017. With heavy rains persisting and waters still rising over much of waterlogged eastern Canada, the nation's military tripled the number of troops urgently working to evacuate thousands of residents. Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre declared a state of emergency for his city, allowing authorities to order mandatory evacuations from threatened areas. / AFP PHOTO / Catherine Legault
