Yes, Fred S is from calgary. He still posts here from time to time, but since he added an m4/3 camera he is more often in the M4/3 forum. But I have seen any posts from him for the past few day. .

Just heard from Fred on another forum. He just posted this:

...Last week my basemnt go about 1 " to 2 " of water
10 Days of Heavy rains and 14 hrs days my Basement is Finally DRY
I hope it stays that way. It still raining
Today the Calgary downtown was fully evacuated
I am VERY thankful I only got a wet basement not a flooded house

Thanks, Steven

On the news here is that they needed to evacuate the zoo so they were going to move the Large Cats into empty cells in the town jail. Which would give you a whole new perspective on being arrested there.

Not meaning to make light of the tragedy of folks loosing their houses in that flood, just sayin.

Wow Ted, that is unbelievable. (Not that they are moving the large cats, but that they actually have empty jail cells available. LOL)

My bad, should not joke about misfortune, but that thought just struck me and had to share it.

Thank you all for the support
UP Date.

Good news on my house
My Basement had 1 to 2 " water in it 10 days ago
I found the crack where all the water seeped in
Am Emergency company injected silicone into it and after lots of mopping and large air dryers
They came over at 11:45 pm and stayed unitll 4:00 am the next morning
its been dry for 4 days now


Most of The Zoo in now under water as is most of the low lying areas
and most of Down Town Calgary
In southern Alberta 100,000 people were evacuated yesterday

My favorite bird sanctuary if fully under water

Oy, Fred. Glad your house is OK. Did they get the animals in the zoo to safety? (Unlike we humans, they didn't volunteer to be there.) That flood is getting wide coverage in the Washington DC area.

Please keep us posted. I'm impressed that you still have internet access.

Ted

Glad to hear that you fixed your flooding basement Fred.

We will be hoping that Calgary will be able to soon get out from under water. That is a bad situation for your area.

UPDATE

Good NEWS
The rains stopped yesterday with a few scattered showers still around
My basement is still dry
and the BEST news all the animals for the zoo were relocated
most of they on higher grounds at the zoo
The Big cats are in different enclosures at higher grounds

Now for the big Clean up.
The core is still closed and the flames saddle dome, water is at the 6th row

The town of Canmore just west of Calgary still has no in or out access.
