Our Alberta Road Trip: Over before it began?

21 Jun

Much if South-Western Alberta is underwater right now- literally. Massive flooding and landslides have caused mandatory evacuations and a State of Emergency in Alberta.

We had planned to land in Calgary, and drive up to Banff and Jasper. The Trans-Canada Highway has been closed for two days now with massive mudslides off the mountains blocking the road. People are trapped in the towns of Banff and Canmore, unable to leave. Follow the links below for more information.

Chris and I are trying switch flights and fly into Edmonton. We need to find places to stay ASAP as evacuees will be seeking shelter.

Below are the road closures-the black indicates road closures. This is the route we had planned to take tomorrow.
