For those of you who haven’t heard yet, our keyboard/trumpet player Angela’s home town of Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the surrounding areas have been devastated by unprecedented flooding. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their homes, all of their belongings, and unfortunately a few people have lost their lives.
To put it into perspective, imagine a city the size of Birmingham having 10% of its houses destroyed, with the city centre submerged, and a population the size of Exeter evacuated. That’s what’s happened to Calgary alone. There are a several other communities in Southern Alberta that have been affected too, as the flood has ravaged an area of the province equivalent to the size of England.
