GENICHESK. TAVRIA. Earlier we reported that Canada is now suffering from forest fires, due to which thousands of people have been evacuated. Another problem for Canadians has been the complete lack of communication in remote communities, as reported by The Guardian.

"Mobile phones showed no signal. Landlines had failed. Chaos quickly set in," is stated in the article.

Obviously, it is important for modern people to stay in touch at all times. Not only have Canadians been deprived of social media, but more critically, they are unable to call emergency services when needed. The absence of police, ambulance and firefighters can be fatal.

Such a problem has arisen in the northeast because wildfires have damaged two key fiber optic cables.

"Experts say the total loss of communications was a 'cascading disaster' that exposes the broader weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the bare-bones infrastructure of the Canadian north," is explained in the publication.

Temperatures in Canada are not expected to drop, leaving the risk of fires to continue.
