"Feeding refugees: Marsh refugees enjoy a hot meal in the Bradford town hall after their flight from the flooded Holland Marsh. Most spent the winter in an emergency trailer camp set up where the community centre stands today."
"Conditions are never so bad but what they can be worse. The utmost care must be exercised to prevent danger from disease at this flood time. The Health Department has issued a warning about water. All water must be boiled for at least ten minutes. Bringing the water to a boil does not kill all germs - a ten minute boiling is necessary. As a safety precaution this office would suggest that the water from every well and water service be given this treatment until such time as the water from that source has been tested and passed by the Ontario Department of Health."
"Protecting the Holland Marsh from another Hurricane Hazel will cost at least $1.6-million, according to figures released by the South Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority...." The Marsh fears its dykes will not hold off another flood if a big storm hits, 25 years after Hurricane Hazel.
Editorial based on "The heroism, the generosity, the untiring labor, the unselfishness, and the sympathy in this time of disaster have been overwhelming..." from the Hurricane Hazel edition of the Bradford Witness.
