Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson announced a state of emergency following rising water levels along the Ottawa River and heavy rains on Friday.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Watson asked the Ontario local administration and the country’s army to warn that “flood levels will exceed the levels that have severely damaged many properties in Ottawa in 2017” He said.

According to a government website, floods killed one person and forced more than 900 people to leave their homes in the province of Quebec. A spokeswoman for the city of Ottawa said the city received 80 requests for services related to potential flooding such as sandbags.

The prospect of more rain in a day or two raised fears of the collapse of a hydroelectric dam in the Bill Falls area in the western part of Quebec due to high water levels.

Quebec police said 250 people had been evacuated from the area as a precautionary measure in anticipation of a crack in the dam on the River Rouge.
