Expect service interruptions at Library and Archives Canada

On Sunday afternoon Guy Berthiaume's account tweeted out "LAC staff: stay tuned, info to come about the flood situation in Gatineau" and later "Only staff living on the Ontario side and working at 395 (Wellington) have to report for work." All federal buildings in Gatineau are closed for the day.

Owing to the flood situation don't be surprised if you encounter service interruptions. As I write this on Sunday evening the online service from LAC is working as usual.

Speaking to a long time resident at Westboro Beach he said he hadn't seen the water in the Ottawa River so high in 50 years. It was lapping close to the wall of the cafe where we hold genealogy meetups.
