Toronto Under Water

The map below shows how much of Toronto would be under water if the city was flooded to the same extent as New Orleans. It's quite startling.

Yay!! Many weeks off work! Sleepover at my house. ^_^

Does that take into account elevation? I mean, it gets pretty hilly over here at Riverside Park...

No, it's just an equivalent surface area, to give a better idea of just how much of the city is affected.

I was wondering, because my father's old house near Danforth Ave. and Danforth Rd. would probably have been flooded. And I would be surprised if Yonge and Eglinton were under water. But if it's just a surface area equivalence, then that makes more sense.

But still... wow.

I was wondering about why it was round. ^^; I live on Davenport, which is the old shore of Lake Iroquois. I like to tell people that I have a beach house.

Aw darn, & I was going to breathe sigh of relief at being just out of the pink zone...
