Canadá: manzanas y otros cultivos sufren severos daños por huracán Fiona
On Sept. 23 and 24, post-tropical storm Fiona left a swath of destruction across much of Atlantic Canada. The damage is already being called historic in terms of financial impact and many people are displaced and/or without power still. P.E.I. premier Dennis King warned in a press conference that the “road to recovery will be weeks or longer,” since the damage was perhaps “the worst we’ve ever seen” from a tropical storm system.
Members of Parliament held an emergency debate in the House of Commons on Monday night, giving MPs a chance to discuss “the urgent and escalating situation in Atlantic Canada,” as Richard Cannings, NDP MP and emergency preparedness critic, called it, and determine how to move forward with assistance programs. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau toured parts of P.E.I. decimated by the storm on Tuesday, getting a first-hand look at the devastation on the ground.
“This region of the province has seen a lot of significant weather events, but nothing like what we have seen from Fiona,” said Andrew Parsons, N.L. minister of industry, energy and technology. “We are focusing not only on the immediate response to help residents in impacted communities, but also working on how we can support in the months and years to come.”
