Flooding Oneida Co.

    Live in the Greater Toronto Area now and all I have to say is that it’s awful. A double decker train was half submerged and they had to send in a marine unit to rescue people. Near the Don Valley River it’s *much* worse but it’s still rough because it was during the tail end of rush hour that it happened. The river’s banks are at risk of completely collapsing. Not good, to say the very least.

    There is some interesting live TV coverage (for those with nothing to do) if you click on the link at the top right on the first link that Bill posted.

    Looks like the pumps were overwhelmed, or stopped working altogether!

    It´s been a horrible experience for me. I know it´s been a few months since the disaster but I still cannot stop shaking when I´m looking at the pictures of flooded streets of Toronto. Anyone who looks at them have to admit it´s something you don´t want to ever experience in your life.
