Epic flooding in Alberta

We have had just an incredible amount of rain here in the Calgary area in the last 24 hours. Flash flooding, roads washed away just a complete mess in some places. The forecast is for another 50-100mm on top of the 70mm we already had. My family booked our campsite for today until Sunday in Kananaskis country where its rained 120mm so far with another 100mm forecast so our trip is pretty much cancelled with roads all washed away and stay home. Ive lived here a long time and never seen such a monster rain. I knew something was up 2 days ago when huge bubblenests showed up in every tank.

Our house will be ok Matt but 70 to 100k people from Calgary neighborhoods under mandatory evacuation. High River area is a disaster with the army called in. Canmore is terrible and big main roads like the Trans Canada are washed out. Rivers will peak tonight between 1am and 5am who knows how high. I expect major flooding here tomorrow morning. A friends family just evacuated from nearby hood will stay with us tonight. We have a view of the foothills from my house and it is just black west of here and continues to pour. It is incredible.

You would have to see it to believe it! Almost all roads are closed. 100,000 evacuated. Still raining hard. Proud of the police and Fire heros just amazing how people pulling together to help. Power going out now in many areas. Just devastating damage. There is now some loss of life reported. It is awful!
