Record-Breaking Rain in BC

From Sunday through monday, the soutwestern corner of British Columbia experienced record setting rain with two feet of water falling in a twelve hour period.

An hour outside of Vancouver in the suburb of Chilliwack 200 homes were flooded, while in the provincial capital of Victoria hundreds more homes and businesses were flooded and the main route between Victoria and Sooke was shut down.

So far the Federal Tories have not laid blame, but it is expected they will fault bottom trawling fishing, rather than global warming.
