Disastrous rainstorm, flooding and landslides in BC cut off all major highways and rail lines.

I hope everyone here on PFF is doing OK (my friends/family were in unaffected areas)

We quite often get a lot of rain on the west coast... but damn, last weekend was something else! Although it was plenty wet here in Vancouver, the torrential rains thankfully had negligible impact on the city itself.

However, an hour (and further) east from here, it's a different story. Many mountainsides that were raging forest fire infernos just a few short months ago, became totally waterlogged this past weekend and ended up sliding down... taking out rail lines, power lines, natural gas pipelines, highways, and vehicles (with people in them). Thousands of farm animals have drowned. It's quite a mess, and it'll take a long time for everything to get back to normal for a lot of people in this province.

I'm wondering how our Fiero friends made out just south of us in Washington State. Hopefully, everyone's okay.

Capt.Fiero (David B., also from BC, I believe) posted on FB, and didn't allude to any personal issues. He did mention an amusement park that was pretty much inundated, however.
Jeez guys... Y'll stay safe. Okay?

2021 has been a very challenging year for BC. Extensive raging forest fires for several months earlier in the year, record setting torrential rains this week, and... I posted Here about the freak heatwave which covered the entire province the last week of June, with a record Canadian temperature of 121° F set in Lytton BC... before the entire town then burned to the ground.
