Update on Bradford dyke break

The water has not receded.  In fact, when I visited the flooded farm this morning right beside the GO Train station, the water levels look visually like they have increased since yesterday. Outside here, the winds are picking up in what is now looking more and more like a lake.

The farmers need help. The town of Bradford has declared this area a disaster zone, to ask for relief. Even those who I take the train with are now calling the town “Bradford by the bay”, with good reason.

The town is also getting a lot of publicity especially the past few days. The news story made CTV news as well as 680 news.

All I know is that this disaster is real, and the need of farmers is great. Their growing season is gone, lost incomes, not to mention property damage!

I have included pictures .. have a look and let me know your thoughts.
