From Jill Maepea of Environment and Climate Change Canada, here is the August review with an outlook for fall.
August mimicked July very closely with hot and humid conditions prevailing across the province. The main exception was a bit more precipitation mainly in the form of thunderstorms and showers (some of which were severe).
Congratulations to IRG member and past president Allan K. Thurber (VE1RG) on being recognized with an Emergency Management Exemplary Service Award. Federal/Provincial and Territorial Ministers recognize the work being done across Canada to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies and disasters. The award ceremony was held on May 24 in Ottawa, attended by nominees and was addressed by The Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness.
