As rain-swollen rivers burst their banks across southern Alberta, more than a dozen towns declared states of emergency, with entire communities including High River and Bragg Creek under mandatory evacuation orders. Alberta Premier Alison Redford said the damage in downtown High River was heartbreaking. (On June 24th, the Alberta government approved one-billion dollars to kick start the first phase of recovery. It provided pre-loaded debit cards to displaced residents to help with their immediate housing needs and day-to-day purchases. Those who qualified received $1,250 per adult and 500-dollars per child.)
