These pictures display only a fraction of the devastation that has consumed our city, but our spirit lives on.

  1. SO CRAZY!!! CRAZY!!! I can’t believe it!! Yay for Calgary that in all of this terrible devastation, people are trying to help so much that the City of Calgary has said that (for now – or at least last time I checked) there are enough volunteers and donations (money, of course, always needed accepted at the Red Cross still) AND no looting! ❤

  2. Wow so sorry to see one of my favorite cities this way. Calgarians are resilient and I’m sure they will rebound quickly and in time for a great Stampede!

  3. So sorry to see this happen anywhere. Thanks for sharing the photos.

  4. My thoughts are with you and your fellow Calgarians…I have been there a few times, and could figure out some buildings/places I know, and this is incredible.

  5. know you will all bounce back bigger and better than ever
