Snowfalls in Canada: closed schools, massively disconnected electricity, December 2017

On December 19 more than 43,000 Canadians were left without power supply due to heavy snow, as the wiring between the power transmission lines was damaged. The incident occurred in the province of British Columbia in the west of the country.

Emergency crews are intensively engaged in the restoration of damaged areas. However, specific deadlines for completing the work are unknown.

Due to bad weather, some motorways and local roads in Vancouver and on the mainland of the south of the province are closed for traffic; according to weather reports, it fell to 20-25 centimeters of snow. The number of road accidents has dramatically increased, flights at the Vancouver International Airport have been canceled or delayed. In the city of Toronto fell 10 centimeters of snow, which also caused problems with the movement.

Many schools during the day decided to close.

" Even that public information about global climate change that is now accessible to the world community shows the development of an extremely negative situation for mankind. In particular, as you know, in the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) dated March 31st, 2014, it is stated that the impact of climate change is already being observed on all the continents and in oceans areas, due to the high levels of global warming, and the world is poorly prepared for risks related to it. It is also said that the consequences of climate change, which can be observed today, have affected terrestrial and marine ecosystems, some sources of sustenance of people, water supply facilities, agriculture, and human health. That is, people, communities, and ecosystems are vulnerable around the world, but the level of vulnerability varies in different places. The consequences of changes of a more considerable scale may be unexpected, severe, pervasive, and irreversible ."( From the report of the international community ALLATRA SCIENCE" On the Problems and Consequences of Global Climate Change on Earth.
