New aerial footage captured from space shows the devastating flooding, mudslides, and winds in British Columbia.
On Wednesday, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield shared a photo of what BC’s catastrophe looks like from space — the same day the provincial government declared a state of emergency.
For comparison, the left is a photo from NASA’s The Earth Observatory of the Fraser River from 2011. Courtesy of NASA, on November 17, 2021, Hadfield shared the image on the right showing the floods from space.
A massive storm dumped record rainfall across British Columbia and Washington State between Saturday and Monday.
Multiple highways remain closed while emergency crews are assessing the damage. Conditions remain severe.
