Lets talk about the weather - join us
Do you remember the ice storm in 2013? Do you remember the power outages and damaged trees laying over our roads. Did you go to a “Warming Centre” to get warm and eat a hot meal, take a shower or charge your phone because you didn’t have power at home? The weather is changing and we are expecting more days of extreme temperature fluctuations. We need to be prepared for weather conditions such as freezing rain, snowstorms, flooding, wind/tornados, etc.
Participate in a two part session to talk about the weather and how it affects you, your family and our community. The collected information is the first step in creating a Climate Change Adaptation Plan for the Town of Halton Hills.
