    This storm is as bad as in 1954 that hit the same area, it will cause more damage because the area has 3 to 4 times the economy with higher population and more modern equipment etc. Some will claim climate change but we seem to have a 200 year cycle with smaller 50 year cycles with in it and sun has a even smaller cycle with it the 50 year.

      Dear Richard,
      Thanks for the informations. It is hard when such big flood happens in big cities. And I am worry about my dad’s good friend, Grandpa Jan who lives in Toronto.

    I was the witness of mother´s nature disastrous acts and even though it´s already a few months since the tragedy occurred in Toronto I´m still shaking. Many people have been affected by it. I was going through some breathtaking pictures when the streets of Toronto became rivers but I have never seen something like that in my life. Many people compare this year´s storm to tropical storm Hazel which occurred in 1954. I think if the storm was much stronger the results would be more horrifying because city wouldn´t be prepared for it technically. After all, we can consider ourselves the lucky ones.

      Dear Eric,
      Thanks for writing. I’m sorry about the tragedy. It must be horrifying to see such a disaster happening in real life. I saw videos of how walls of water from the storm surge brought by Typhoon Haiyan turned a street in Tacloban City into a raging river and the same thing during the Tsunami in Japan a few years ago. It was only on video but it was still so scary.
      Regarding the flood in Toronto, we were so worried because my dad’s friend, Grandpa Jan lives in Toronto and he is an old man. Thankfully everything is okay.
