Why you need Water Protection
Weather patterns are changing worldwide, a trend that’s affecting Canada directly. Over the past 60 years, average temperatures have increased by 1.3°C, and average rainfall has increased by 12%. The end result is staggering:
Canada now has 20 times the storms and floods that we had just two decades ago – and major floods represent almost 40% of all natural disasters ever recorded in this country.
And it’s not just overflow from rivers and lakes – damage from storms, spring thaw and other fresh water flooding is occurring everywhere.
Did you know?
• Canada has an average of 20 more rain days a year than in the 1950s.
• Severe weather events that used to happen every 40 years can now be expected to happen every six years.
