Floods in British Columbia Caused the Biggest Damage in Its History – $450M

Floods in British Columbia

The insurance agency of Canada managed to sum up the terrible floods and calculate how much it would cost the state to eliminate its consequences. Floods in British Columbia have already been called the most costly disaster in the history of Canada in the area, and damage is $450 million.

However, a huge number of people were affected by these natural disasters, so the overall costs are expected to be in a few times higher. These disasters have also had a profound influence on the most vulnerable groups of the population. Therefore, the authorities must decisively strengthen their efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change in the future and adapt it to the new weather reality that people would face in a couple of years or even months. At the height of the emergency, nearly 15,000 people were displaced from their homes. The death toll included over 600,000 poultry, 12,000 pigs, 420 cows, and 120 hives.

It is also forecast that some parts of the inland and mountain passes would snow from Friday, rainfall on the lower continental plains would reach 60 mm, and strong winds would blow across much of the province!
