This is another mural in the Islington neighbourhood done by John Kuna - this one done in 2011 and titled "Aftermath" and depicts the clean-up that took place after Toronto was hit by Hurricane Hazel in October of 1954. 81 people were killed in Ontario during the hurricane, most of them in Toronto when the houses on a whole west-end street were swept away during the night by a raging Humber River. Those floodplains have now been turned into parks but extreme flooding that is taking place in Western Canada now has demonstrated that whole towns can be flooded out in very short time periods no matter what precautions are taken.
