Canada issues weather 'red alert' for British Columbia

캐나다 환경부(Environment Canada)는 첫 번째 “적색 경고” 브리티시 컬럼비아에 대해 관리들이 더 많은 대기의 강을 이 지역으로 밀어낼 것으로 예상되는 위험한 기상 시스템으로 특징짓는 것보다 앞서.

The red level is something new that we have not issued,” Armel Castellan, a meteorologist with Environment and Climate Change Canada, told CNN Canadian affiliate CTV.

이번달 초, 브리티시 컬럼비아, Canada’s westernmost province, experienced a catastrophic flooding event, forcing evacuations, damaging highways and infrastructure along the Fraser River Valley down to the US Border and disrupting shipping in Vancouver. On the heels of the deluge, more heavy rains are forecast in the form of three atmospheric rivers in one week.
    We are now in recovery mode, and we still have dangerous weather ahead. We have had one more atmospheric river yesterday,” Castellan said. “What is forecast for this weekend will be storm number two and again for next week, Tuesday and Wednesday, will be storm number three in a row.
      Castellan noted the storms are coming back-to-back-to-back with very little time in between.
        “그래서, imagine that we’ve had an extraordinarily wet fall, the soil is, the landscape is completely saturated. Any extra moisture runs down much more easily and quicker,” 그는 말했다.
        We also have had snow,” 그는 말했다. “그래서, in those middle elevations, there is snow to melt, and that is precisely what these next couple of storms are going to do. We are going to be adding snow melt to the rainwater and creating a lot of runoff.
          Castellan warned the new weather systems will put warm air into exceedingly high elevations, with heating in the mountains up to 3,000 미터, if not higher.
            The British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is proactively closing some sections of highways and asking drivers to avoid nonessential travel ahead of another round of heavy forecast rains.
            The highway infrastructure in these areas is extremely vulnerable following recent storms, and more heavy rain in the forecast poses an additional risk,” the ministry said in a release.
