Princeton, B.C. battling the weather amid flood cleanup

Cleanup efforts continue in Princeton, B.C., with thousands of pounds of garbage being excavated into a large pile which was created by flooding in the town four weeks ago.

Princeton Mayor Spencer Coyne said the recent snowfall has hampered cleanup efforts.

“Right now, we are trying to do snow removal on top of all the clean up,” said Coyne.

“We are managing our street maintenance. It’s a bit of a challenge without our snow removal equipment but we’re managing.”

Currently, the town is relying on a few skid-steers and a single one-ton pickup truck for sanding to clear its streets of snow.

“That’s one of our biggest drawbacks right now, getting enough sand on the road,” said Coyne.

“We are running as fast as we can, getting that sand out. We are asking residents to be patient with us but it is difficult right now.”

With the large majority of the town’s snow-clearing equipment damaged and unusable after the town’s works yard flooded, though, residents say it’s a concern — especially with more snow forecast for the region.

“We only got one sand truck for inside town,” said Katelin Lafleur, a Princeton resident.

“It’s a big concern. I’m really hoping for the better of the town.”

Some good news for Princeton residents, however, is their water system has two operational watermains now, with the second being operational as of Tuesday night.

The town’s sewer system is stable as well, according to the mayor.

Princeton is also working closely with the provincial government to hopefully bring in some temporary housing for evacuees to return.

“The plan is to hopefully put something up at the industrial park,” said Coyne.

“We have flat land up there and it’s servable. We are working with the province and contractors to create a camp-like situation so people can stay in the community and work and get back on their feet as they go.”

The mayor expects to hear more news about the possible temporary housing in the coming days.

瞬間噴煙量、ピナトゥボの3倍か トンガ海底火山噴火 東大地震研

 南太平洋のトンガで起きた海底火山の噴火について、瞬間的な噴煙の量が、1991年のフィリピン・ピナトゥボ火山噴火の約3倍と推定されることが20日までに、東京大地震研究所の鈴木雄治郎准教授(火山物理学)の分析で分かった。  15日のフンガトンガ・フンガハアパイ火山の噴火では、噴煙は高度約20キロ、半径約260キロに広がったとみられる。  鈴木准教授は人工衛星が撮影した画像を基に噴煙の広がりを分析。ピナトゥボ火山などの噴煙量のシミュレーションと比較し、1秒当たりの噴煙の量が、同火山の約3倍に上ると推定した。  噴出したマグマが海水に触れて大量の水蒸気が生じたことが、噴煙量の多さにつながったと考えられるという。  一方、今回の噴火は数十分程度で収まったとみられ、約9時間続いたピナトゥボ火山と比べ、「噴火の規模としてはそこまで大きくないのではないか」と話した。  今回の噴火では日本でも大きな潮位変化が観測された。鈴木准教授は詳しいメカニズムは不明としつつ、「大量のマグマと水が接触したことがきっかけになった可能性がある」と指摘した。  Read more »
