Officials of the Distress Centre of Ottawa are anticipating an influx of callers as residents across the city of Ottawa deal with the aftermath of the devastating storm that occurred over the Victoria Day long weekend. 

Thousands of people are still without power. 

Leslie Scott, the manager of media and communications with the Distress Centre of Ottawa, said while the storm has had a profound and widespread impact on the people of Ottawa, she firmly believes that people will be able to overcome the obstacles and challenges brought on by the latest weather event affecting the capital. 

"We can appreciate right now that you may not be feeling that strong, and it feels like you can't get through this because we have been dealt a lot and it's been one thing after another," Scott told The Sam Laprade Show on Thursday, May 26. "We have to remember, we are resilient people. We can get through this together and we will get through this together. It's going to take time."

Scott added that it may be easier to talk to a stranger, and there is no fear of shame or judgment.
