 Today's weather trivia: 13 March 1936: Spring floods across Quebec drown 11
people in 2 days. Near La Martine, 5 children from 6 months to 8 years in
age were swept away by a torrent of water. Their parents and 5 siblings
survived. Earlier, 4 members of another family disappeared at
St-Tite-des-Caps when floodwaters carried another house away. Water reached
over highways and rail lines, and crippled communications.
