Lake Ontario flooding the weather network

This is about the (IJC) International Joint Commission and Plan 2014

I will attempt to provide the information necessary,, so everyone can understand, how all of this works.  I will also provide News stories and Youtube videos documenting some of the flooding that has occurred.

A Picture is worth a thousand words. Their story needs to be told. Seems the International media is not reporting this.

Many smaller local medias are. To date they have been doing a great job.

Plan 2014 was implemented in January of 2017.

Great Interview This explains Plan 2014 extremely well Go Here

Plan 2014 Go Here

IJC did not listen to the Minority Report Go Here 

The IJC knew the plan would cause flooding.

Under the old plan this type of flooding did not happen.

Now when you see the videos and pictures, try to imagine the shorelines went out much farther then what you are seeing.

The flooding started in May.

Do check the dates on everything. The videos and news reports will not be in sequence.

There is a lot of destruction to the Eco-systems. Wild life Habitat is being destroyed. There were Environmentalist that wanted this plan. They wanted 64,000 acres of more wetland.

13,613 have signed. So far.

Both Canadians and Americans can sign this petition.

This is just a small look at what is happening along Lake Ontario.

The damage is wide spread and ongoing.

Please share this this.

These people need help to have Plan 2014 Repealed and go back to the old plan.

Youtube has a lot on the 2019 flooding.  Check it out.

They are attempting to chalk a lot of it up to climate change.

There have been other years, when there was a lot more snow, so that does not apply.

If anyone has other news reports or links to photos, please add them in the comment section. That would be appreciated.

All comments are moderated. So your comment will be there after approval.  that Keeps the Hate comments out.  I have had a lot of those.

It was on the feed at CBC at the link below.

Calling the Police immediately, would also be a good call to make. If the two in question did steal the animals they should be charged with theft. Anytime you think your dog may have been stolen contact Police and report it. Even if you think your dog is just missing, it does not hurt to let Police know. They are always out and about and may see your pet.

Severe flooding has forced around 1,000 Siksika people from their homes on the Alberta reserve, a large portion of which hugs a stretch of the Bow River about 100 kilometres east of Calgary. The disaster has been unfolding there since Friday, when the river poured over its banks and covered some areas with over a metre of floodwater.

“How are we going to recover from all of this is what went through my thoughts,” Chief Rabbit Carrier told CBC News on Sunday.

“There’s a sense of hopelessness… as a leader you have to overcome that and put emotions aside and start working toward the recovery.”

Chief Rabbit Carrier said the community is still in a state of emergency. The reserve’s recreation centre has been turned into a shelter where a list of items — baby formula, diapers, towels, blankets and non-perishable food — are in high demand. The phone in the centre’s main office rings constantly.

“We’ve been very fortunate that we have not lost anybody,” Chief Rabbit Carrier said.

In the lobby, a group of volunteers hoping to rescue animals trapped in the flood gets organized. They’ve already saved several animals, but plenty of barn animals and pets alike have perished. “If it has a pulse, we’ll save it,” one volunteer said.

Update on flood waters

Alberta water headed to Saskatchewan

The city warned residents, along with their pets, to stay away from the South Saskatchewan River as it prepared for an influx of water not seen in more than 100 years.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/story/2013/06/23/sk-saskatoon-prepares-flooding.html

A rancher in the Estuary area, close to the South Saskatchewan River, is surrounded by water from the swollen river.

Ian Ferguson has already moved his cattle to higher ground, but water has inundated his barn and corrals.

It is also headed to Manitoba

States of emergency have been issued for some Manitoba communities as levels of local rivers rise as a result of heavy rain and floodwaters from Alberta.

The Pas along with the Opaskwayak Cree Nation and the Rural Municipality of Kelsey were under a state of emergency on Monday because the levels of the Saskatchewan and Carrot rivers continue to increase.

Meanwhile, at least three other Manitoba municipalities have declared states of emergency as they deal with flash flooding caused by heavy rainfall over the weekend.

Qatar sends aid to Gaza flood victims

January  21 2010

DOHA: Qatar Charity has sent aid to flood victims in Mighrafa area in the centre of Gaza Strip. The Charity’s humanitarian gesture is aimed at alleviating the miseries of the families affected by flooding that forced them to evacuate their homes and farms.

Abdullah bin Hussien Al N’amah, Chairman of the Charity, said that Qatar has sent instant relief material to families and has begun distributing it to 40 families.

The relief goods consist of foodstuff and cash doles.

The Charity is also coordinating with local authorities to asses the damage to further provide aid and also to contribute in the reconstruction of damaged houses.

At least 12 people were injured in the flooding which destroyed scores of homes and inundated animal shelters.

The flooding cut off roads and washed away a bridge linking Gaza city to the south of the territory. Flood waters reached 3 meters (9ft) in some places.

Israel floods Gaza villages, displacing a hundred families

Gaza flooded after Israel opens dam gates
January 18 2010

Israel has opened the floodgates of one of its dams in the eastern part of the Gaza Strip, flooding Palestinian houses and causing severe damage.

The Israeli authorities opened the dam’s floodgates without any prior warning or coordination with local authorities in Gaza, stunning the residents of the area, the Press TV correspondent in Gaza reported late on Monday.

There has been heavy rain in the region over the past 24 hours. It seems the Israeli authorities could not handle the huge amount of rainwater and decided to open the floodgates without prior warning.

Because Gaza is located in a low-lying area and the elevation decreases on the way to the Mediterranean Sea, water gushed into the area, flooding two Palestinian villages and displacing a hundred Gazan families.

The locals say Israel intentionally caused the floods, the Press TV correspondent said.

The waters from the dam, called the Valley of Gaza, flooded houses in Johr al-Deek village, which is southeast of Gaza City, and Nusirat in the eastern part of the territory, where the Al-Nusirat refugee camp is also located.

The Valley of Gaza is about 8 kilometers long. It starts on the eastern Gaza border with Israel and ends in the Mediterranean.

The houses of many Palestinians have been flooded and a number of people are trapped inside or on their roofs, while many have also gone missing, the Press TV correspondent said.

Rescue teams are using small boats to evacuate the trapped people.

Hamas has condemned the act as a war crime and has called on all concerned parties to intervene and offer assistance to the locals.

The flooding has made life more difficult for the Gazans, especially for those still living in tents because their homes were destroyed in the December 2008-January 2009 Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.

In the war, more than 1,400 people were killed, mostly women and children, and over 10,000 houses were destroyed or damaged, forcing at least 500 families to live in tents.

Very little progress is seen in reconstruction of the devastated areas in the Gaza Strip, mostly due to the Israeli blockade, which has prevented the delivery of building materials to the coastal enclave.

Valley areas south of Gaza evacuated from rising floods
January 18 2010

Gaza – Civil defense forces in Gaza evacuated tens of families from their homes in the valley town of Juhor Ad-Dik south of Gaza city Monday, as floodwaters inundated the low-lying area and filled the streets.Dr Muawia Hassanen, head of emergency and medical services in Gaza, told Ma’an emergency crews were on standby to respond to calls from rapped residents in areas adjacent to the southern Gaza city valley. So far, he noted, no injuries were reported.

Colonel Yousef Az-Zahhar, the director of the civil defense in the de facto government, said waters were collecting in the valley and sweeping down from several nearby hills, he said vehicular traffic had been prohibited on the streets leading into the flooded areas.

The flood area has cut off Gaza city from the southern West Bank, Az-Zahhar said.

Israel Cracks Down on the Press

January 18 2010

Jared Malsin, the editor of the English edition of Maan News Agency, has been detained by Israeli authorities.

Malsin, a Jewish-American who lives and works in the West Bank, was picked up on Tuesday at Ben Gurion International Airport, as he and his partner returned from vacation in the Czech Republic. After being subjected to eight hours of interrogation, Malsin was deemed a security threat and was slated to be deported to Prague Thursday morning.  Why?

I am guessing that is Why Ma’an news the second story above failed to mention Israel flooded Gaza on purpose.

The West bank is also flooding and have  declared a state of emergency.

Rescue personnel in the West Bank have also declared a state of emergency. Floods have hit various areas, and flooding is expected to get worse. The civil defense called on Palestinians to avoid using coal or wood for heating, and to use heaters instead, to lessen the risk of fire. Residents were also warned to be alert to fires that could break out due to incorrect use of heating appliances.

Gaza floods: ‘We heard the mosque speaker warning and fled’

Gaza flood Photo Ma’an news January 19 2010

Nabil Al-Qeshawi’s home was destroyed Monday night in torrents of floodwater that inundated the valleys south of Gaza city, rendering the 19 members of his extended family homeless.

Al-Qeshawi, 61, described the incident as terrifying, “everything was normal, there were winds and rains in the area, but we dealt with them as usual. Suddenly we heard a warning message being broadcast from the mosque, but we could hardly hear it through the rain.”

When the father of five went outside to check the house, he “found floodwaters rising in the valley were only 200 meters away from my house. We started to evacuate the children and lead them to a safe place. When we went back to save some of our clothes and belongings, we found out that the house was under two meters of water, everything was ruined.”

Farmer survives drowning in valley flood

Adnan Al-Khamaysa spoke to Ma’an as he checked himself out of the Gaza City Hospital Tuesday, after being choked and battered by torrents of waters at the bottom of the valley south west of the city.

The farmer was in his home when the rains hit, and evacuated his family from the area, then walked out into the valley to check on his flock of sheep. Al-Khamaysa became trapped in the water and dragged through the current until other families down the hill managed to pull him out.

“The night was terrifying, I have seen death a thousand times, I did not expect the flood to be so strong” he said.

Officials confirm heavy losses

Yousif Abu Hweshel, mayor of the town Al-Mughraqa, hardest hit next to Juhor Ad-Dik, said at least 70 homes and hundreds of dunums of agricultural land were totally underwater.

He added that Civil Defense forces were working to find displaced families safe places to stay as the floods continue, but worried about the difficulties residents would face in the future in rebuilding their homes given the Israeli siege. Source

Israeli Minister claims Israel provides Palestinians “more than enough water”

January 19, 2010
By Saed Bannoura

On Monday Israel’s National Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau told a meeting of German Ministers that Israel gives the Palestinians more than they are required to by treaties.

But the Palestinian Authority’s Water Board says that this statement is an outright lie.

Palestinians control only 14% of their water and last year received only 90MCM from the 118 MCM allotted by Oslo Article 40.

Even the 118 MCM are nowhere near what is needed for the population.

According to the most recent World Bank report, Palestinians get 34 liters of water per capita per day while Israelis get 280 liters per capita per day. Israelis, including settlers living on stolen Palestinian land in the West Bank, are permitted to dig wells 70 meters deeper than their Palestinian counterparts.

Some Palestinians wondered if Landau was referring to Israel’s flooding, on the same day he made the statement, of Palestinian villages in the Gaza Valley. Hundreds of Palestinians were displaced from their homes, which suffered severe damage when Israel opened a dam directly toward the Palestinian area.

A little update I just picked up

January 18 2010

German supporters of the Palestinian cause are holding a demonstration against a joint German-Israeli cabinet meeting in Berlin.

A crowd of demonstrators gathered on Monday to expressed anger at Israel’s ongoing siege of the Gaza Strip and the ongoing expulsion of Palestinians from East Jerusalem Al-Quds.

They have also vowed to expose Israel’s indiscriminate and targeted killings of the Palestinians, which was highlighted in Israel’s relentless three-week blitz on the tiny enclave in December 2008-January 2009.

More than 1,400 Palestinians, including women and children, were killed in the onslaught during which Israeli soldiers committed war crimes by using human shields, targeting schools and UN buildings that were hosting civilians.

Meanwhile other activists held a protest to decry Germany’s potential sale of military equipment, stressing that the country’s constitution did not allow the sale of arms to any sides of an ongoing conflict.

The protests come amid Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Germany for talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The meeting is aimed at boosting security cooperation and bilateral relations, but German media have also speculated it may entail a fresh Israeli requests for more free or half-priced German arms.

Ahead of the joint cabinet meeting, media reports said Israel intends to station one of its German-made Dolphin submarines in the Persian Gulf.

Since 1998, Germany has spent EUR 900 million in providing Israel with five Dolphin class submarines. Source
