The Village of Islington Times, Fall 2014

City planning has become increasingly important especially in light of recent storms but it is hard to imagine
that July 2013 was a rival to the historic hurricane that hit Toronto 60 years ago. Some readers will remember
Hurricane Hazel, the killer storm that really hit close to home. And who can forget Toronto’s flooding last year?
Southern Ontario flooding reminds us of how prepared or unprepared we are in the face of a natural disaster and
the lengths that the City still has to go in preparing for potential disasters.
