I thought I'd start a thread on this topic, with the events still unfolding in Alberta.
There are many issues not making the news: a leak of hydrogen sulphide gas from a well head near Turner Valley which is "sort of contained". That is like being "sort of" pregnant. It's "better than it was", says my family.
In my brother's words: "Gas lines are blowing out of the ground everywhere". They are floating to the surface.
Infrastructure failure is looming: The reservoirs are all being opened because they are full, and roads and bridges are expected to be washed out.
I have very spotty cell phone service with my family as they are in the middle of the disaster. My brother says: "I won't have a land line for a very long time" so telephone connection is down. All power, telephone lines in that part of Alberta are buried because wind is usually the biggest cause of damage. Now water has taken out the services.
Pump jacks and oil production facilities are swamped. I can only guess there will be an environmental impact.
And last but not least, people have lost their homes. That made the news.
Forecast for the Kananaskis mountains: 60% chance of T-storms.

I don't see anyone on line but we are in the middle of an intense storm right now. Clouds were definitely swirling in a rotational pattern as observed from the ground, anyway. They were boiling.
So far, just heavy rain, not even a lot of wind...yet, anyways.

We just had a T-storm go over, and the clouds were simply boiling. One layer going north, another going east, another going northwest....gave me motion sickness.
Rained heavily, and now looks boring...
