Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Slave Lake Hit by Back-to-Back Disasters

First the wildfires devastated Slave Lake; now comes the deluge

Heavy rainfall in northern Alberta causes flooding near Slave Lake.

The mayor, of course, blames the nature:

“You feel like you’re in a war zone and you just have to fight to the end, and Slave Lake is worth fighting for,” said SL mayor, Karina Pillay-Kinnee.

Torrential rains hit the area dumping about 100mm of rain on Friday, when residents woke up to find streets inundated.

Some people who were living in the basements of homes devastated in the May wildfires found their makeshift habitat submerged under floodwater.

Flood warnings have been issued, as more rain is forecast for the region in the coming days, reports said.
