Flood Watch 2013-05-05 (Geo-Tagged)

Click the photo above to see the map and all 63 geo-tagged photos from around the Regina Wascana flood zone. Below are some of the most significant shots of the day. Due to the early opening of the flood gates, areas downstream are much higher now compared to the lake relative to 2011 flood levels.

Video will be processed overnight and another trip around the lake before sundown will give a good indication of how fast things are developing with temperatures now over 20C.

About Me

Kayaking, bird watching, fishing and wildlife photography are my summer hobbies when waiting for storms. See my adventures on YouTube!

I build a daily map of storm risk for the Canadian Prairies to accomplish two things. One, translate the complications of the meteorologists into something simple that the public can understand clearly. Two, become a buffer on social media to either raise the alarm and calm the masses depending on the level of hype.

Storm chasing is limited nowadays to a few photo ops by Wascana Lake in Regina or up north at Pratt Lake. Generally, I spend more time tracking storms from home and sharing forecasts and great footage on Twitter which saves on gas and keeps me safe in my studio/bunker.

There are two seasons in my world, storm season and gaming season. April and September separate the two. I play FIFA, Sea Of Thieves and Fortnite with live streams on Ask me about sports, I am a fan and knowledge base of all things FIFA, Premier League, CFL and NFL (yes its all football). 

Thanks for all the likes, shares, comments and encouragement. Stay safe and enjoy the weather!
