The Saddledome, Stampede Ground, LRT Station and all the houses in the area are in water. Dozens of communities are flooded. This is much bigger than the Saddledome.

Almost 100,000 evacuated.

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!
It's more the rainfall in the mountains & foothills west of Calgary - the Bow Valley area got around 125 mm (5 inches) of rain in 24 hours - and that's just the worst 24 hours, it's been raining steady for days. Still expecting another 20-50 mm there today.

I'm not sure the part in bold is even true, I don't think you can get any sort of flood insurance here.

For what it's worth, so far as I know nobody has been injured or killed by the flooding. There's going to be an insane amount of damage, but we can at least be grateful no one is paying a higher price.

Yeah, I suppose that might be a possibility if somehow this year the Flames went on a miracle+ run and were playing in the Stanley Cup finals this year, it would be a valid concern.

Might have to borrow Rexall? Don't know.

Two men have died in Highwood River, and one more is missing.

For what it's worth, I have flood insurance. Sea flooding isn't the only flooding we can experience.

Evacuation order has been lifted as the Sheep River is receding. Possibly the only good news so far.

The building is owned by the city.

lived in calgary for 15 years... crazy seeing some of these images.

One thing you can pretty much count on, as soon as the flood waters recede the only stories we'll be hearing is about how much the people/communities rally together to help with the clean up & supporting those whose lives have been compromised by this disaster.

Great place to live because of the people...

I'm sure they'd rather have their house destroyed instead of than them being dead. That's probably what he meant.

Or Red Deer, NHL would make an exception to the 15000 seat arena rule just for the rest of the season.

But then again how do you fit all the season ticket holders in there? Refund?

I think it would be Edmonton most likely. Or Vancouver if they took the rivalry really seriously.

Feel bad for Calgarians, that's a lot of property being washed away, it's going to be a nightmare to rebuild.

There is no flood insurance in canada for residential for sure. Can't speak about commercial property. Only thing that is covered is your car if you have comprehensive coverage.

thanks everyone for their good wishes - I JUST got home (I work in the SW and naturally, i live in the NW, so with all the bridges closing and everything, i needed to get home ASAP), and yeah, it's HORRENDOUSLY bad out there.

a HUGE chunk of downtown is underwater.

[ironically enough two weeks ago, the city found this huge glut of money, and everyone was fighting what to do with it.. well that answers THAT question]/

"Are you going to work today?"

"LOL NO"

Thankfully I live a good ways south of the flooded areas but I hope anyone else here who lives in Calgary is staying safe.

^ All insurance companies will insure different areas of the country differently. I have a flood/water damage rider on my insurance coverage.
