Unbelievably, 135mm (over 5 inches) of rain fell in Port Alberni today.
Along the highway in and out of Port Alberni, trees fell everywhere.
Now these are not just __any__trees. These are old growth giants.
A short while ago, one of these trees came down by the parking lot in Cathedral Grove.
It squashed a car seriously injuring the occupants. They got off lucky. Last year a couple were killed the same way.
Can you imagine?
The same things happened in Vancouver today with old growth trees in West Vancouver taking out homes. This is crazy weather.
Living here all my life I can say with confidence there has never been weather like this.
It is warm and wet and wild. In November.
We expect another storm on Sunday.
God help us all.
