I think 23 neighbourhoods were evacuated, 100 000 people displaced, Grand Prairie, Red Deer, and Lethbridge are being affected too. It's sunny and cloudless outside my window right now (Our area isn't nearly as bad) But a bunch of kids aren't writing finals today and my highschool school along with downtown are dealing with tons of water. The Bow and Elbow overflowed their banks like fucking crazy and 2 people are confirmed dead, with 2 more assumed dead. For some reason city transport is still running even though half the city if fucked over and the zoo got flooded but all the animals are safe. A couple bridges were swept away and some homes as well.
Calgary has a reputation for having some stupid weather, it hails here consistently about once a year in the summer, and it's been raining on and off for about 3 or 4 weeks here, but it wasn't until a day or so ago that the weather went fucking crazy on us.
Just thought you guys could use some info. from a person on the inside. #WeAreTheNewVenice #LuckilySoManyCanadiansOwnCanoes
