Flooding

Calgary has been hit hard by flooding.  Up to 75 000 people have been evacuated from 25 different communities, downtown is mostly underwater and everything is just a mess.  All schools are closed, they are advising everyone to stay home and lots of roads are closed.  Even the Saddledome is flooded up to the 10th level.

Luckily I live on a hill way away from the river so my family and home is safe.  But the pictures are really incredible.

It isn’t just Calgary that is affected though – High River has been mostly destroyed, Canmore, Banff, Red Deer, Okotoks, Bragg Creek and several other towns around Calgary are also affected.
