On June 20, 2013, Calgary and many surrounding towns declared states of emergency. Heavy rainfall earlier in the week (over 200mm in some areas) created flash flood conditions. Many rivers flooded to an extent not seen in many decades, or perhaps ever before in the province in modern times. The extensive damage will take many weeks to be assessed – homes, businesses, city buildings, utilities, parks and recreation facilities, roads, railways, bridges, the Calgary Stampede grounds, much of the downtown core… everything along flooded rivers has been impacted. Here, water pouring over the spillways of the Glenmore Reservoir dam has burst the banks of the Elbow River, sending flooding into the low lying facilities of the Calgary Golf & Country Club. The day after the emergency came down, when I briefly approached the dam between on-going showers, the level of the silt-laden water had peaked a few hours before. The image looks deceptively under-stated compared to the immense damage that had already been done, and continued to escalate over the coming days.
