Extreme rain in Nova Scotia causing widespread flooding 7

Preliminary estimates show up to 250 mm of rain fell in some areas of Nova Scotia as of 6 a.m., and in the Halifax area, it appears to be the heaviest rainfall event since 1971, a local meteorologist says. The torrential rain has caused severe flooding on several highways throughout the province and power outages affecting 40,000 customers, and prompted the evacuation of residents near the St. Croix River system.

  1. Could the cloud seeding going on in the central US and Mexico be having a negitive effect on areas like NS where drought is not issue and moisure in the air is common.

  2. The Overthrowing
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.[81:1]
    When the sun is overthrown,

    And when the stars fall,

    And when the hills are moved,

    And when the camels big with young are abandoned,

    And when the wild beasts are herded together,

    And when the seas rise,

    And when souls are reunited,

    And when the girl-child that was buried alive is asked

    For what sin she was slain,

    And when the pages are laid open,

    And when the sky is torn away,

    And when hell is lighted,

    And when the Garden is brought nigh,

    (Then) every soul will know what it hath made ready.

    Oh, but I call to witness the planets,

    The stars which rise and set,

    And the close of night,

    And the breath of morning

    That this is in truth the word of an honoured messenger,

    Mighty, established in the presence of the Lord of the Throne,

    (One) to be obeyed, and trustworthy;

    And your comrade is not mad.

    Surely he beheld Him on the clear horizon.

    And he is not avid of the Unseen.

    Nor is this the utterance of a devil worthy to be stoned.

    Whither then go ye ?

    This is naught else than a reminder unto creation,

    Unto whomsoever of you willeth to walk straight.

    And ye will not, unless (it be) that Allah willeth, the Lord of Creation.

  3. Sadly enough … these aren't 100 year storms.. Expect floods to happen when you live in a Flood Plain.. If you want this to happen again … Rebuild.. THEN … call IT … Global Warming.. Sorry to say … I was surprised when everyone that was affected … rebuilt and continued to develop, without doing anything for the eventual event to happen again.. At 80 years, of age, would it be safe to call these storms, 25 year storms? Does anyone remember when Dartmouth got it's face washed in 1971? … with a 280mm (11") rain storm? Before you make and post a video clip, do your homework first.. That goes for the major NEWS Networks.. The real shame about this weather storm is, everyone will pay for this in their insurance premiums.. Why do people build and develop in known Floodplains?..
