survived some flooding

Toronto, 2018.08.07

There was flooding in Toronto tonight, and twitter was alive with astonishment; I couldn't help but think of the typhoons. Specifically, the one that killed 250 people, which the Japanese bore with their usual stoicism. I wonder how things would go in Toronto if we had the population density of Tokyo (which is in excess of 6,000 people/square kilometer, fully 50% higher than Toronto's).

Well, I think I know: chaos.
