Top 10 videos of the week: April 1
We get a lot of footage each week here at The Weather Network, so we decided to share our favourites with you. Here are the weather videos that had people talking in Canada and around the world this week.
- #10 -- Earth Hour. There was global solidarity for Earth Hour as iconic landmarks turned off their lights for an hour.
- #9 -- Great Blue Herons in Vancouver, BC. This is the eleventh consecutive year the majestic birds have nested in a large colony in the trees above the Vancouver Park Board’s administrative offices and the nearby tennis courts.
- #8 -- Winter lingers in Grand Prairie, AB. This is the eleventh consecutive year the majestic birds have nested in a large colony in the trees above the Vancouver Park Board’s administrative offices and the nearby tennis courts.
- #7 -- Still snowy in Eastend, SK. Snow may not have been falling in this viewer video, but what did fall made the landscape look pretty cold even though spring has supposedly spring.
- #6 -- Mission in Spring City, Utah. Search teams rescued seven people trapped by an avalanche on Horseshoe Mountain in Utah recently. Aerial video shows rescue workers hiking on the mountainside in the midst of fog and snow.
- #5 -- Panda Kindergarten in China. Baby pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in Southwest China's Sichuan Province have started to live away from their mothers and move into the panda kindergarten. They have learned to show their unique Kung Fu to visitors.
- #4 -- Prince Harry in Longyearbyen, Norway. Prince Harry has been told he can expect freezing temperatures of minus 40C when he joins wounded servicemen on the first five days of their unaided 200 mile (321 kilometre) trek to the North Pole. He also tested a survival suit and plunged into an ice pool.
- #3 -- Flooding in Thailand. Nearly 1,000 tourists have been evacuated as of Thursday (March 31) from many tourist hotspots in southern Thailand. Local officials have warned of more mudslides.
- #2 -- Earthquake in Tarlay, Myanmar. A recent earthquake completely tore up the highways in Myanmar. Government workers have been working around the clock to get the road network back in use for traffic in the remote areas in northeast Myanmar.
- And finally, #1 -- Puddle Jumping in Barrie, ON. What a great way to say So Long to ski and snowboard season! Snow Valley’s annual puddle jump had plenty of thrills…and spills to please the crowds.
