The purpose of this dataset is to locate emergency safety events recorded by the Operations Branch of the Department of Public Safety. It consolidates operational information related to claims that have had an impact on citizens, goods or services to the population since June 2020. It contains information on the date of the report, the hazard, the municipality and the severity of the event. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

The Multi-Hazard Vigilance Card is a product developed by the Ministry of Public Safety (MSP) that brings together warnings and reports about natural phenomena that may affect the safety of citizens, goods and services to the public. It is continuously updated automatically. It provides continuous monitoring of the province's territory for hazardous natural phenomena. These warnings and alerts or related data come from the partners of the MSP. These include: 1. exceedances of ice free water flood thresholds at hydrometric stations whose data are publicly released by the Department of Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change (MDDELCC), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Chaudière River Monitoring System (SSRC), the United States Geological Survey (USGS); thresholds were defined by the MSP with the exception of those associated with SSRC and USGS stations that were defined by both agencies; 2. ECCC public weather warnings and alerts for blizzard, fog, rain freezing, rain, snow, hail, hurricanes, tropical storms, winter storms, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, winds and extreme cold with moderate or greater severity; 3. new and out-of-control forest fires from the Forestry Fire Protection Society (SOPFEU); 4. Richter scale earthquakes greater than or equal to 4 from Natural Resources Canada (NRCAN) by the Multi Agency Situational Awareness System (MASAS); Warning: reported magnitudes are preliminary; 5. reports of runoff greater than 50 mm in a basin over a 48-hour period from the department Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change (MDDELCC). The calculation is based on the average runoff on the watershed. This data is displayed during the period when the soils may be frozen, that is, from December 1 to May 31. 6. Warnings on the provincial road network from Quebec 511 from the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l'Électrification des Transports (MTMDET); 7. in-service images of Canadian weather radars; 8. web-based images of U.S. weather radars; 9. web-based hurricane trajectories from the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The first five items are also displayed as raw data in a situation feed that can be subscribed to with certain software. For different warnings or alerts, the situation feed on the Multi-Hazard Vigilance map displays Common Alert Protocol (CAP) attributes. *Severity is a (PAC) tag and is used to filter ECCC warnings and alerts. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**
# #Données related to flood monitoring 2019 in Quebec __Warning: water body data is a near-real-time interpretation of satellite data; they were produced in operational mode and are provided as is without exhaustive validation. The product may contain errors, especially in urban areas.__ ## #Liste of available data: * tracking flood and landslide events between April 14, 2019 and May 28, 2019 in geolocated points (web service and download), * municipalities affected by flood events between April 14, 2019 and May 28, 2019, real-time update with the event layer (web service); * the open water extent limits generated by Natural Resources Canada, derived from Radarsat 2 satellite data or other radar satellites and those generated by Dromedaire Geo-Innovations, derived from Sentinel satellite data (web service and downloading), * flood limits for the Chaudière River area derived from helicopter data (web service and download) * visible and near-infrared satellite images on the most severely affected areas (web service and downloading where possible) * oblique images acquired on April 29 on the river of the Ottawa region and the Greater Montreal area under the National Aerial Surveillance Program (link to Federal Government Operations Centre application) All data are also available on an interactive map based on IGO2. ## #Note: Radarsat-2 satellite acquisitions are planned in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada. Access to radar satellites from other Canadian space agencies is possible through the activation of the International Charter for Space and Major Disaster. It is activated by Public Safety Canada. Images obtained through the international charter are processed by Natural Resources Canada's emergency geomatics services as soon as possible and the open water polygons are released as open data on Data Canada and Data Québec. Other optical or radar acquisitions may have been obtained by the Ministry of Public Safety (MSP) from private suppliers. The Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 acquisitions disseminated in open data by the European Space Agency (ESA) were processed by the firm Dromadaire-Geo-Innovations. **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**
High voltage electrical transmission lines for distributing power throughout the province. Lines were derived from several data sources representing unique inventories: BC Hydro, Private, Independent Power Producers, and Terrain Resource Information Management (TRIM).
Historical hydrometric data are standardized water resource data and information. They are collected, interpreted and disseminated by the Water Survey of Canada (WSC) in partnership with the provinces, territories and other agencies through the National Hydrometric Program. These data sets include daily mean, monthly mean, annual maximum and minimum daily mean and instantaneous peak water level and discharge information for over 2700 active and 5080 discontinued hydrometric monitoring stations across Canada.
Following the spring floods at the end of April 2017 on Lac des Deux-Montagnes, Lac Saint-Pierre and the Prairies and Mille-Éles rivers that affected the Montérégie, Laurentians, Mauricie, Montréal and Laval regions, geomatic data (e.g. satellite images) were captured to document these floods, which exceeded the recurrence 100 years. At the top of the flood on May 8, Lake des Deux Montagnes reached a level of 24.78m at the Department of Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change (MDDELCC) station 043108, the Prairies River reached a flow of 3400 m3/s at the MDDELCC station 043301 and the Thousle-Îles River reached 1081 m3/s at the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) station 02OA013. On the Ottawa River, the flow at Carillon reached a peak of 8900 m3/s **This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**
A cross-country summary of the averages and extremes for the month, including precipitation totals, max-min temperatures, and degree days. This data is available from stations that produce daily data.
The Regional Deterministic Precipitation Analysis (RDPA) produces a best estimate of the amount of precipitation that occurred over recent past periods of 6 or 24 hours. The estimate integrates data from in situ precipitation gauge measurements, weather radar and numerical weather prediction models. Geographic coverage is North America (Canada, United States and Mexico). Data is available at horizontal resolution of 10 km. Data is only available for the surface level. Analysis data is made available four times a day for 6h intervals and once a day for the 24h interval. A preliminary estimate is available approximately 1h after the end of the accumulation period, and revised 6h after in order to assimilate gauge data arriving later.
Argo is a global in situ ocean climate monitoring system consisting in an array of over 4,000 free-drifting floats that collect data on ocean temperature and salinity, and sometimes oxygen, in the upper 2000 m of the ocean. It is an international effort, with more than 30 nations contributing floats to the array since 1999. Data from Argo floats are made publicly available within 24 hours of collection time, for free. The data provide valuable information on changes to the Earth's climate and hydrological cycle. They are used for a variety of purposes, such as assessing climate change, improving weather forecasts and developing ocean models. Argo Canada, lead by Fisheries and Oceans Canada, has launched over 450 Argo floats since 2001. As of November 2017, 81 Argo Canada floats were active.
