The point of my comparison you actually missed completely was that the flooding was an annual event. Before Manitoba and the Mississippi valley were settled it flooded every year just like the Nile. The difference between the 2 is that the Egyptians understood the cycle and developed methods to take advantage of it whereas in North America people decided to try and control nature instead of living in harmony with it and using it well like the Egyptians. It is the arrogance of the modern world thinking that humans can somehow control mother nature and we are all now paying the price every year as she proves her dominance over mankind. If we just let the natural course of the water exist as it wants to and farmed the land accordingly there would be far less problems.
The Winnipeg Floodway is a good example what preparedness can do to avoid disasters.
It's the Portage Floodway that isn't up to snuff in this situation. It was you I wished good luck to months ago inregards to this springs flooding. Either I have a time machine or it was obvious that this was coming.
This is a huge failure by MB Govt and the Feds. To say they didn't know it was coming is an outright lie and the people who weren't properly warned deserve a huge apology as well as full compensation.
You live on a tsunami-risk island....
The flooding will do those Louisianan swamplands a lot of good-swamps need water not fertiliser.
Is this the latest from Levack?
Because only a thin strip of WCVI is @ risk-it's happened in the past and will happen again but it's NBFD.
