Calgary Flood 2013

In June 2013, Alberta, Canada, experienced an unseen deluge of rainfall that created a major flooding disaster described by the provincial government as the worst in Alberta's history. Several areas along the Bow, Elbow, Highwood, Red Deer, Sheep, Little Bow, and South Saskatchewan watersheds were hardest hit. A total of 27 local states of emergency were declared and 28 emergency operations centres were activated as water levels rose and numerous communities were placed under evacuation orders. Four people were confirmed dead as a direct result of the flooding and over 100,000 people were displaced throughout the region. Some 2,200 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) troops were deployed to help in flooded areas. Preliminary estimates suggest damage from the flood could be between C$3–5 billion. Receding waters gave way to a mammoth cleanup of affected areas, aided by a spontaneous volunteer campaign in which many home owners were assisted by complete strangers. See Wiki 2013 Calgary Food.
