A Brief Message from Doug Draper
Posted April 14th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Going by almost the forecast from almost every meteorologist across Southern Ontario and Western New York, not to mention those working for Environment Canada and the federal weather bureau in the U.S., the ice storm expected to hit this greater Niagara area later this Saturday and lasting through much of Sunday, could be a very destructive one.
Tree limbs, if not whole trees, are expected to fall through a wide area, causing power outages for possibly tens of thousands of people before the ice turns to rain that could cause extensive flooding in some areas.
So Niagara At Large may be unavailable through the weekend into Monday, but we will be back on the back side of this, and will be hoping, like most of you, that spring weather will finally break out.
Of course, for those of you out there who still believe that climate change and the severe weather that comes with it is a hoax, you have nothing to worry about.
