While floodwater’s are receding today, torrential rains have caused local rivers to overrun their banks completely devastating the Calgary region.

Unless residents had a spare canoe sitting around most of them had to evacuate.

Drowned-out cars have been reduced to nothing more than road-hazards for passing boats, which is the only way to get around.

Three people have died in the floodwater’s, and a fourth may still be missing.

With rainfall letting up however, there’s a silver lining.

Officials hope residents can start returning home to survey the damage.

So, raise a glass of Canada Dry for our neighbors to the north, just for good measure!
