State of emergency (in Off-topic)

So Calgary and area ( where I live ) Is flooding and the province of Alberta is in a state of emergency. 33 years and I have never seen such flooding. The downtown core is underwater and 10% of the population has been evacuated from there homes, approx 100,000 people. Several small towns and city's in this province are flooded and I'm guessing the damage will exceed a billion dollars. The rain is expected to continue for several days and the rivers continue to climb.

I know Americans are no stranger to danger but this is new for me and my heart goes out to all who are affected.

Damn man, that's awful. My thoughts go out to everyone in that area.

:( I'm sure Calgary will bounce back quickly. Good luck in the mean time, and be sure to help any neighbors who need it.
