Sara’s View of Life with Sara Troy, on air from November 23rd
Parts of the province have seen up to 230 millimetres of rain in just 24 hours, we come together in disarsters, and lord knows so many need us now, but let it not just be when bad stuff happens but be there for each other all the time. With so many who have lost their lives, so many animals lost to the flooding, so many farms obitorated, so many road gove completly, BC Canada is in dia need of help and support.
A section of Highway 5 was washed away by the surging Coquihalla River near Hope, B.C., on Monday. Floods and mudslides continue to have a severe impact on highways throughout southern B.C. This road alone will take months to rebuild.
Wild life run to seek shelter from the flooding rain. So many caught in the floding and unable to get out.
Still reeling from fire season, Merritt, B.C., evacuees now taking stock of ‘devastating’ floods Entire city of 7,000 ordered to evacuate Monday after wastewater system failed. Now the loss and clean up with more rains to come.
A mudslide closed Highway 1 between Popkum and Hope, B.C., east of Chilliwack. Rains throughout the province have led to treacherous conditions, closing the Coquihalla and other key highways.
Storm sends barge straight into Vancouver’s seawall.
What’s in the floodwater? Toxicity of water detailed in recent Abbotsford study
Human and animal fecal matter, oil and gas, asbestos likely leave water highly contaminated, so many live stock have died, and farms are under water.
THEY HAVE RESCUED A FEW CATTLE, BUT SO MANY LOST TO THE FLOODING.
The devestaion is unberlievable and will take moonths and even years to rebuild. My own daughter lost a good frined in the slide and his body no where to be found.
