That is crazy. Might help them get a new arena.
Less likely, might end up pushing back the Flame's bid to get a new arena by many years.

It's probable that the City/Province will be on the hook to repair/renovate all the damage from the flood which will likely be in the tens of millions, especially if the jumbotron was destroyed.

Time to build one massive arena in Red Deer that the Oilers and Flames both can share... sure it's a trek for the fanbases but both cities need a rink and the combined efforts of all of Calgary + Edmonton is a force the province would have to get behind... especially after this flood.

Before everyone points out all the flaws in the idea... yes I know it's not realistic.

Wow... Medicine Hat is in for it...

The pink area is where the huge flood in 1995 hit, they're expecting the pink area AND the yellow area to get hit by the flood coming up.



Heres the mandatory evacuation are for Med Hat... glad my Aunt moved away from there last year, she was very close to the river (grey is the evac area) :

For those interested, Google maps have been a handy tool for knowledge about current evacuated/affected areas.

Stuck in Canmore. The isolation is maybe the weirdest part because there really aren't that many places to go, especially when it's raining.

I feel for the people & businesses affected here.

I'm just frustrated because they don't give us a timeline and rumors are it could be another week. :p

not really, looting will always be there during disasters. people will always take advantage of chaos, i cant believe some of you were surprised or thought the army would prevent it.

I would say this is more surprising in Canada which is one of the more civilized countries on Earth. But I would say its a function of our declining mores and social fabric that this would be occurring. What kind of animal does this? Seriously. These losers have friends, parents, lovers? Somebody deserves to be shunned and alone. What kind of sociopaths condone this behavior?

I dont want to go more into this and kinda go on a tangent.

But this just shows Canada isn't much different at the end of the day we are all alike!

So if the North Sask does go up 5 metres does anyone know how that would compare with the flood of 1986?

I ask because in 86 my house was about 2 vertical feet from flooding and, as I mentioned earlier in the thread, I am not in Alberta at the current time to monitor the river.

Any thoughts (hell I'll take wild speculation) would be appreciated.

Have no idea as a comparison but can tell you as of right now there is a lot of debri floating down river but has not appeared to have risen much (I live on the 16th floor of an apartment on jasper that overlooks the south so I can see a good stretch of the river)

Wow, that is unreal to see. Thanks for posting that Gret99zky. Much as I dislike their sports teams and their fans, naturally you only hope and pull for them as fellow Canadians and human beings. Hopefully, nature spares as many places of work and homes the worst of things. Adding my own small voice of solidarity with fellow Canadians down there to the chorus.

Vandalism, petty theft, B & E's happening pretty much daily in our town. Wouldn't be surprised when vigilantly neighbour hood watch is in vogue.

I had just heard that Lethbridge is supposed to prepare for flooding...for those of you who live there (I believe one frequent poster does), can you provide a more specific update? I am supposed to leave for Lethbridge tomorrow night to teach a week long course next week.

You might be thinking of Medicine Hat? Lethbridge has lifted the state of emergency as the river has peaked. The river valley is now also open, as it was closed the last couple of days. So it looks like the threat is over for Lethbridge.

if you look under the #abflood hashtag this morning there are tons of pictures of receipts and items that are marked up to ridiculous prices.

50$ for a 24 pack of water. 60$ for a fruit tray. Hope these businesses suffer the consequences.
