The final drain off of polluted, stinking, water from the nearby Riviere-des-prairies helped in last few days with some decent sun and wind along with municipal gas-powered pumps strategically installed by city maintenance crews running all day.
Since my last post on Tuesday dealing with the “flood of the century” that hit both Quebec and Ontario provinces, the water has reluctantly started to recede although the flood remains for property closer to the river and other low-lying areas.
Despite progress on the outside very little has changed inside many inundated basements in affected parts of Pierrefonds.
Elsewhere, in affected areas in the province of Quebec, things remain grim despite a bit less water hanging around moreover, many have lost their homes which remain under water.
When will it all end is anybody’s guess however, optimism, faith in the Almighty, and lots prayer will certainly help and is needed along with a huge amount of money for all the resources and work done by municipal employees, police, military, and brought in specialists needed to resolve this.
Also, more volunteers and everything they need to help them doing their work assisting the “professionals” before this whole mess ends.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”FINAL”
