Scenes like this are being repeated all over the flooded areas in Ottawa and Gatineau. It reminds me of the disasters I’ve seen in New Orleans and South Carolina during the floods there.@jwhittalTWN @weathernetwork #ottawaflood

Floods in Canada
History of flooding in Canada
Any flooding in western Canada, or along the Red River in Manitoba?
By the way, I live on high ground, between Mont-Royal and Rosemont. But certainly not indifferent to the flooding! Parts of Montréal itself and Laval, the very large suburb just north of us, are affected. And certainly the smaller islands around Montréal and Jésus islands (i.e. Laval).
I am not tracking anything out of the normal for Manitoba. Here is the government webpage for flooding.
Here is the forecast from March. The May one should be out shortly.
Here is a retrospective of a half-century of laxism (or just ignoring the flooding risk). https://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/201904/26/01-5223767-inondations-le-q... I haven't found any story on this in English.
J'espère que personne qui poste ici n'a été touché par les inondations
Est-ce que quelqu'un sait si la region autour de Sainte Agathe et aussi Ste Lucie a été effectuée par l'inondation?
Great effort made here
It just keeps coming

There have been some evacuations along the Red River, and the water is high here, but that is nothing compared to what you guys are seeing out East. It's been a very dry year, so once the ice melts off Lake Winnipeg, all this water is gone and life goes back to normal. Outside the Red River valley, the problem with water in Western Canada is that there simply isn't enough of it.
Yes, I was thinking of there (which is about dead centre east-west in Canada, but "West" for historical reasons) and all the way over to the Pacific. I know that aridity is the main problem elsewhere on the Prairies, though they've been managing to grow a lot of legumes in the past years - impressive!
I live in Trent Lakes now and the water is higher than usual. However the water is controlled by the dams along the Trent system so nothing real serious yet here or Peterborough.
Big rains are coming here this week (starting tomorrow) so I’ll be keeping my eyes open. There’s a pond out behind the house that dries out during the end of summer. It’s a little higher than usual but we’re still very safe even in the basement.
Ottawa River poised to peak amid flooding in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick

Flooding updates: Volunteers needed Tuesday as water peaks approach
Please don't forget the deplorable situation on a reserve in Northern Ontario (western side of James Bay), where the people have been evacuated every spring for 17 years! Roméo Saganash posted that at his Twitter account. Although the corresponding situation on the Québec (eastern) side is nothing to crow about, I get the impression that the situation in Ontario is far worse. The reason is not any munificence of the Québec government, but the struggles waged by the Cree and Inuit for recognition of their rights. Bourassa just wanted to screw them and take their lands with a pittance in compensation.
And on top of all that, the current name of the community is due to a misspellling!
Thanks lagatta. I never would have never knew about the racist Canadian government lack of support towards the Cree people’s of Kashechewan had you not posted the comment!
