Earlier this past summer we experienced wayyyy too much heat....scorching heat, over 40 Celcius for a few days and sadly many unprepared people died. Now mere weeks later there's been too much rain and 7000 people have had to leave their homes. As far as we know right now nobody has died from this horrific unrelenting rainfall that lasted for several days but many many people have lost their homes in the city of Merritt. The fire in Lytton burned all the houses, stores,schools, businesses etc. except for one house that was left standing. Now this flood; pretty much all the homes have been ruined but greatfully all the people got out as far as we know. It's unbelievable but a freak of nature took over; everyone is alive but they too will likely not have a livable home to go home to.
