After weeks of heavy rain, in June several rivers in Canada’s Alberta, province overflowed, flooding huge areas. Floods on the Bow, Elbow, High and South Saskatchewan rivers caused the evacuation of more than 75,000 people in Calgary and 10,000 in Medicine Hat and devastated the town of High River. Roads and bridges were washed away and hundreds of homes were submerged. The resorts of Banff and Canmore were cut off when the Trans-Canada Highway was temporarily closed.
