ALBERTA—The two rivers that
converge on the western Cana-
dian city of Calgary were receding
yesterday after floods devastated
much of southern Alberta
province, causing at least three
deaths and forcing thousands to
The flooding forced authorities
to evacuate Calgary’s entire down-
town and hit some of the city’s
iconic structures hard. The Sad-
dledome, home to the National
Hockey League’s Calgary Flames,
was flooded up to the 10th row,
leaving the dressing rooms sub-
Bruce Burrell, director of the
city’s emergency management
agency, said Saturday they are see-
ing improvements in the rivers.
Dan Limacher, director of water
services for the city, said the Elbow
river is expected to recede by about
60 per cent over the next two days,
while the larger Bow river will
recede by about 25 per cent.
Overflowing rivers on Thursday
and Friday washed out roads and
bridges, soaked homes and turned
streets into dirt-brown waterways
around southern Alberta.
High River, southwest of Cal-
gary, was one of the hardest-hit
areas and remained under a
mandatory evacuation order. Police
said they have recovered three bod-
ies in the town.
It is estimated that half the peo-
ple in the town of 13,000 expe-
rienced flooding in their homes.
Police cut off access to most of
the town and helicopters were cir-
cling overhead. Abandoned cars
lay submerged in water, while
backhoes worked in vain to push
water back from houses.
About 1,500 people in Calgary
went to emergency shelters during
the flooding, while the rest of those
evacuated found shelter with family
or friends. Schools and courts were
closed Friday. Transit service in
the city’s core was shut down.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper,
a Calgary resident, said he never
imagined there would be a flood
of this magnitude in this part of
“This is incredible. I’ve seen a
little bit of flooding in Calgary
before. I don’t think any of us have
seen anything like this before. The
magnitude is just extraordinary,”

million people that hosted the 1988
Winter Olympics, is the centre of
