Calgary and most of Alberta is under state of emergency for the last few days, for many this is the 2nd time in 2 weeks that major floods have hit us. Calgary is about 1 million in population and this flood certainly has a serious impact.
Well our region is having some of the worst flooding in the last 200 years. We've had some bad ones in the last 10 years, something I remember fondly was a brutal flood in Calgary from a cyclone storm that was stuck above our city for a good 8-10hrs pouring down terrential downpours that I have never seen the like.
These are images from that storm about 6yrs ago:
And now the latest, mind you the above one was a 'flash flood,' this one was a steady developing flood due to weeks of steady rain with some very heavy rain.
Anyone else notice that the City Bus in the first picture is pushing through the water.
