Alberta, Canada – A local state of emergency has been declared in Southern Alberta after the worst flooding the region has seen in over twenty years. Homes and major roads are now completely engulfed in water. Dozens of people have been evacuated from their homes, and up to 560 kilometres of major roads have been shut down. Surprisingly, the floods aren’t being caused by rain, but by melting snow from the spring weather spike. Alberta temperatures are expected to soar up to 22°C this week, way above average for this time of year. Meaning that water levels are rising way faster than Alberta can keep up with.
