State of emergency declared in Montreal

Galeno Paniagua | 09 May, 2017, 16:30

He said the government will look to local suppliers first before deciding whether to transport bags from elsewhere in the country.

The flooding has forced almost 1,900 people from their houses in 126 municipalities in the Canadian province of Quebec, authorities told the Associated Press on Sunday.

Red Cross volunteers are working in 12 welcome centres across Quebec that have been set up to help victims of flooding.

In total, 2000 people have left their homes and about 500 roads washed out province-wide.

"We have to be prudent, the water is flowing quickly", he told a press conference in Montreal. Stewart says the product has been available since late 2015.

"I have never seen so much water between Ottawa and Montreal", Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of the prime minister, told broadcaster RDI.

Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel said Friday that rain in the province was forecast to reach historic levels - "beyond the worst scenarios that have occurred in the last 55 years".

Bogle attended Berkshire's meeting Saturday after Buffett praised him in his annual letter to shareholders this year. He said it may have been harder to single people out because "we have never had more good managers".

"With the dams, we have been able to slow down the flow (of water) by over 2,500 cubic metres per second".

If you live along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River and you're begging for more water to be released at the dams in Massena, you need to see what it's doing in Montreal.

Even after the devastating flood in southern Alberta in 2013, McGillivray said, only 94 of 254 homeowners accepted buyouts offered by the provincial government. We'll be there with police forces. "The deployment was swift and efficient".

Some 1,200 troops have reportedly been deployed to help evacuate people.

The issue now, Feltmate said, is that new flood maps would be "politically toxic". Residents are being told to stay off water-covered streets, and to be ready to evacuate.

Over 1200 military personnel have been called out to help with the flood situation in Quebec. "I've spoken to people who have crossed".

"We are here to serve the civilian power", Lavoie said.

Amid Escalating Tensions, North Korea Accuses CIA of Assassination Plot
North Korea has accused the United States and South Korea of plotting to assassinate Kim Jong-Un. North Korea equated the plot to an "armed invasion" and vowed revenge.

"We'll sort that out in the days ahead and we'll do so fairly that is appropriate in the circumstances, but the key thing is make sure the resources are there to keep people safe", he said.

Whatever hope Montreal-area flood zone residents had that Nature would throw them a break was extinguished in a haze of constant drizzle early Friday as Environment Canada updated its special weather statement to a full-fledged rain warning.

The town of Rigaud, west of Montreal, has been particularly hard hit and a state of emergency has also been declared there.

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre declared a state of emergency on Sunday afternoon, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported.

The has military raced to sandbag homes, and schools and official buildings have been closed in some areas as the province continued to grapple with the disaster.

The slide forced the closure of two highways.
