The 2013 Alberta floods: Alberta is under water
The flooding that devastated southern Alberta seemingly caught everyone off guard, both with its size and ferocity. It started June 20 with flooding in Canmore but soon affected other parts of southern Alberta, including the biggest city in the province. Before long, wide swaths of Calgary were evacuated and some 75,000 people displaced. There were as many as four deaths and immeasurable damage to the homes and neighbourhoods of the people caught in the flood zone.
