That's essentially the entire lower bowl up to and including the luxury suites

Stole this pic from the oilers board weather thread, the line is at row 10 in this pic.. So it's considerably higher now.

I work about 2 blocks from the Saddledome in Victoria Park and let's just say I've got the day off work. If anyone wants to see some pics of the condition of Calgary:

Off and on for about 10 days now, and it's been torrential for the past 36ish hours.

That bottom one sucks. Hope that they managed to move some of it out though.

The destroyed lockers and equipment can easily be replaced. But the jumbotron? It was relatively new and in HD. It cost millions of dollars. Man, there might not be a jumbotron at Flames home games next season.

With all due respect to the situation, that's a beautiful picture. Western Canada has always been on my to-visit list (only been to Vancouver and only for a few days for a tourney).

I would hope the Flames/arena has insurance. Plus, it didn't say the jumbotron was destroyed, just that the room for managing it was. Hopefully the flooding won't get that high.

I thought it was the jumbotron control room that got destroyed?

I assume they would have lifted the jumbotron pre-flood, if it hadn't been already.

Based on Nashville's flood history. When Nashville's flood occurred they would have moved NSH's home games to another NHL arena.

It most Lilly would have been home game at Rexall for a long while. But for CGY fans note there WILL be insurance on the building and the check will be astronomical. Who owns the building?

My bad. I didn't see the "rm" part. But I hope the flood doesn't reach the second deck of the arena.

You would probably see a scenario similar to Katrina when the Saints and Hornets temporarily played in other cities. All the cities mentioned for potential relocation could be considered for a temporary home for the Flames, or any other NHL team where that happens.

Not very likely that the Saddledome would flood during the winter/regular season

It would be called snow.

I don't live anywhere near Calgary I have no idea what happened. Why is there so much rain in such a short amount of time?

Also I don't have the link now but if you want to go check on the Oilers or OKC Barons website there may be pictures and videos of the aftermath at the rink in OKC.

Hope it can get cleaned up soon!

All but one of the playing staff are still alive apart from McCrimmon who sadly died in the Lokomotiv crash.

almost nobody has flood insurance in Calgary, it's way above sea level
