I don't know if anyone has heard of this but I know there are a few Albertans in the pit that are probably dealing with this. This is calgary,



Our city was in a state of emergency but since I live up in the higher areas we didn't get evacuated although we did lose our power for a bit. It's all pretty surreal because you can't actually go anywhere to see the mess. Our entire downtown is just shut down.

So discuss local disasters?

One time, it rained really hard here and it made it so I couldn't skateboard.

But for real, hope you're alright. Flash floods are all we have to worry about here, but it hasn't rained that bad in years.

Calgary is located in a pretty safe spot so its really rare when shit like this happens. I'm just glad I'm up high. My friends neighborhood is underwater. I'll see if I can find a picture..

Weather in Ontario is fairly tame

EDIT: One time it rained so much that the sewer systems were overloaded and the ghetto area of town got flooded in shit.

Red Deer has warnings, but I'm not seeing much here. It looks really nasty in Calgary though. It's pretty much all anyone is talking about here.

At least you don't live in a soup bowl 9ft below sea level that got hit by a hurricane in 2005...

Most of the people here in my country live underneath sea level. The last big catastrophe was in 1953. We've built giant dykes and floodgates to prevent that from happening again. On top of that, we have massive sanddunes to keep the ocean at bay.

Sorry, but New Orleans had it coming with such terrible protection.

I'm an hour away from that, but it's getting bad where I live.

NO is full of giant dykes.

I've got family in Calagary, but luckily they're in higher spots so haven't been evacuated or anything. The last really bad flood we had here would've been '97, but I don't remember it that well.

Hopefully you and yours make out alright.

There's a guy from Calgary here on holiday and he said now he has to stay another week here in the Caribbean, oh well. Why I don't know, doubt the airport is flooded...actually shiiit that looks deep as hell

I was about to post that, looks terrible there. Hope it improves soon.

Living on a river has its benefits when it comes to weather drainage, but I've still seen my fair share of floods.

Has the weather cleared up? Hopefully at least some of it can be allowed to drain before anymore rain comes.

It never really rained all that much here it was just the surrounding areas and all the water has to pass through.

EDIT: Just checked.. It's supposed to rain until Wednesday..

That's crazy.

I wonder how people get to hospital in these kinds of crises. And medical staff etc. What do those already at work do? Stay there?

Or do they get boats or something out to transport people in emergency situations?

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Damn bro that shit is crazy.

Stay safe.

Although I really can't help but think that if that happened in my area, that I'd get in our boat and ride along seeing if people needed help or anything.

Might as well, y'know?

I was actually wondering if that was the reason why you weren't posting as much.

I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? 'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.' 'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.' 'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.' I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture, a city where the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, Where the great would not be constrained by the small! And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.
