It's quite different when it's right outside your Window.
I have never been in a situation quite like this before. I live in Southern Alberta myself and normally we don't get the crazy weather you see in other places. It has been raining here NONSTOP and not just a light drizzle. It's hard, sideways rain and golf ball sized hail at some points.
The city of Calgary is now starting to evacuate as well as other smaller towns around there. My town was declared in a state of emergency and many of the roads were closed due to flooding. Luckily for myself my house is on high ground so I was not in any evacuation areas of my city, however there is now a lake behind my house where a field used to be.
I know many people in Calgary, a lot of them have been forced out of their homes but a lot more people have actually lost their homes. I had one friend that actually had a waterfall going down his staircase in his own home. My parents have even had roof leaking.
If anyone is interested in donating to the Alberta Floods relief by the Canadian Red Cross please do so here, it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for taking the time to read this. And if anyone is also from Southern Alberta good luck and try to stay dry!
