Southern Alberta is getting pounded...

All of Southern Alberta is getting it.

States of emergency in Canmore, Calgary, High River, Bragg Creek... probably more as well. Many river have burst their banks, and a large section of the Trans-Canada Highway in Canmore washed out.

Here's a sample...

Here's a river monitoring station on the Highwood River. It's in cubic meters per second. Flow is about 15 times normal right now.

For perspective, the Bow River in Calgary usually runs around 150 cms in the summer, and the Highwood is now running over 700 and it's expected to continue to rise.
