Niagara Falls, ON — In anticipation of an unprecedented influx of visitors, the City of Niagara Falls has taken proactive measures by declaring a state of emergency. On April 8th, 2024, an estimated one million people are expected to converge upon the city to witness a rare celestial event: the moon completely obscuring the sun during a solar eclipse.

Mayor Jim Diodati emphasized that this decision is essential to enhance the region’s capacity to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of both residents and visitors. By activating emergency protocols, the city aims to protect critical infrastructure and mitigate any potential risks.

The Niagara Regional Police have issued the following advisories to residents:

• Vehicle Preparedness: Ensure your vehicles are fueled up in advance.
• Grocery Planning: Consider purchasing groceries ahead of time to avoid last-minute rushes.
• Traffic Expectations: Anticipate high vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the city.
• Travel Patience: If you plan to travel, exercise patience due to increased road congestion.
• Alternative Communication: Given the anticipated overload, plan for alternative means of communication as cell towers may experience disruptions.

To manage the large crowds and address cellular coverage challenges, Bell Canada has strategically deployed two mobile cell towers near Queen Victoria Park, specifically at the base of Murray St hill. While this measure will alleviate congestion, it is important to note that it will not entirely prevent coverage-related issues.

Residents and visitors are urged to stay informed through official channels and cooperate with emergency responders during this extraordinary event.

Interesting, but in the future, you should cite the source of your media information with a link and quote only the opening paragraph of the article. Some sources are particular about copyright.

The source was me… I wrote that and published it on the Dark Trace Media social media pages.
