Flood Aftermath in Etienne Brulé Park

Flood Aftermath in Etienne Brulé ParkI just took a walk along the Humber River in Etienne Brulé Park. I've walked this park since I was a toddler and never in my life have I seen the river so high. I've seen the park overwhelmed by glaciers, but I've never seen this.

Water can be so beautiful & so destructive at the same time.

Remember that these are natural floodplains so it happens everytime the city gets a torrential downpour.

Why is Dave Philips so quiet? Greatest job in the world is a weather forecaster cuz no matter how wrong you are you still get to keep your job.

Looks like a lot of people will not have insurance to cover the damage to their homes, as most don't carry extended coverage. Just can't imagine the devastation this can cause. As Ho mentioned, it can be so beautiful, but turn it's ugly side on you quite quickly. I've donated to the Salvation Army for Alberta, just waiting for the campaign to help out locally.
