Funny, the first thought I had after noting severe rain for 8hours in a row is avoid Whitemud at any cost. This freeway and its sloped underpasses are notorious for this which any Edmontonian realizes and knows after one year driving here.

Hint: Avoid routes with down sloped underpasses.

Take another route!

Do people even give this any thought as they hit the freeway from side roads that are practically flooded?

There should be a darwins law for tow trucks in this city.
