A veterinarian in Moncton, N.B. has already treated several animals for flood-related injuries and illnesses this season. Dogs have stepped on sharp objects including nails and are at risk of gastrointestinal infections if they have been exposed to floodwater that could be contaminated with fecal matter, oil, or bacteria like Cryptosporidium or Giardia, Brett Tremble told Global News.

Living in Canada we can understand that dressing for the weather can be tough. But, it turns out that dressing to talk about the weather can be just as complicated.“Many female meteorologists are subject to a strict dress code for what they can and cannot wear on air,” Shelby Hays, a KOCO Meteorologist from Oklahoma told Tech Insider. “Patterns are considered ‘too busy’ and there are often regulations on sleeve length or style.”When Hays learned of a $23 sheath dress from Amazon through an online chat room for weather forecasters, she jumped on it. “Someone stumbled onto ‘the dress’ and a few of us ordered it and shared pics of it on air in our group. Everyone saw how great it looked,” Hays says. “At $23 we could buy a handful of these dresses for what we normally pay for just one.”“The dress” has since appeared on a number of news stations in almost every colour available – with the exception of green, which will disappear against a green screen.
