Calgary Flooding - Ariel Footage From Global News Helicopter [MUST SEE]

Terrible flooding in southern Alberta today. These waters are now heading towards Medicine Hat tonight and into Lake Diefenbaker in Saskatchewan next. The city of Saskatoon is also in the path of this one in 500 year flood. Nobody has seen a flood like this before in Alberta so it is impossible to predict how bad it will get once it hits the dams in Lake Diefenbaker, the worlds largest man made lake. It is still raining in Calgary so there is really no end in sight. A total catastrophe and what will likely turn out to be the most costly disaster in Canadian history.

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!
