The Flood of 2013 chronicles an unforgettable summer of angry rivers, unprecedented flooding, and undeniable human spirit. This book looks at how the disaster irrevocably changed southern Alberta and its people. In the face of disaster, Albertans showed their true grit and rose above adversity — just like their ancestors did for generations before them. The flood began in southern Alberta on June 20 and led to four deaths, billions of dollars in damage, and more than 100,000 people fleeing their homes to escape raging waters. More than 80 Herald journalists — photographers, writers, editors, videographers, researchers, and digital producers — helped to narrate the tale of the flood. Using their words and images, this stunning volume captures not only the devastation and destruction of the flood but also the emergence of heroes and heartfelt moments. Neighbors helped neighbors. Strangers helped strangers. And Albertans vowed to recover, come hell or high water.
