I wonder if anyone has seen what is happening in Alberta on the news?

Calgary and area is being effected by severe flash flooding, over 100,000 people evacuated and it's a state of emergency. The entire downtown is under water and 4 people dead so far. If you are a hockey fan, the saddeldome is full up to row 14.

They have never seen anything like this. It's scary and so sad! I am an hour from the flooding so we are fine of course, but now all of the downstream towns and cities are being hit. The army is here now. A lot of the major highways are closed because bridges are out and faults from all of the rainfall has formed.

My friend sent e these photos yesterday. He was trapped in his apartment with the water still rising but most people have been taken out by boat now. These are about 10+ blocks from the river
