    Canada keeps getting walloped with the rain storms. Is this normal for Canada or an unusual year?

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    Power was out for about 5 hours last night. No flooding in this part of town though. Being from Vancouver, where the rain is distributed over many days per year instead of all at once, I didn't know what "it never rains but it pours" meant until I moved here.
