State of Emergency: YYC Flood Pt.II

The City of Calgary has been bouncing back faster than most expected. Sections of the city that were previously flooded are now dry but the rivers left a lot of mud, dirt and debris behind. We have plenty of people to thank for their hard work and dedication they have applied to making our city beautiful again. We must thank our emergency workers, volunteers and generous citizens for all they have done in the last couple of days. Our city will look amazing again and I have never been prouder to call myself a Calgarian.

The following photos were taken with an iPhone in the Mission neighbourhood two days following the flood. Mission is one of the neighbourhoods greatly effected by the flood and is located on the banks of the Elbow River. On Sunday, citizens living in Mission were allowed to re-enter their homes to asses the amount of damage caused by the flood. The amount of damage I witnessed was shocking but I have no doubt that these courageous Calgarians will bounce back.
