quebec - Many Canadians have forced this week to leave their homes due to severe water pollution. Especially in Quebec, emergency is high: according to Canadian media, more than 130 municipalities have been affected by floods after continued rainfall.
'It looks like a war zone,' said a resident of one of the affected municipalities Saturday against news broadcaster CTV. The woman forced the electricity into her partially submerged house in Quebec. She also tried to bring her property to safety. 'Everybody here is in panic,' she said.
The Canadian government has deployed over four hundred soldiers in Quebec, where about 850 people had to be evacuated. People are also called in some areas to stay away from rivers because the end of the rainfall is not yet in sight. In addition, the fast-flowing water debris can feed.
