    Flood pole in Riverdale shows water at 5.5 metres, up from 4 last night. Lots of people checking in. #yeg

    The water at the dragonboat launch near Dawson Park is presently no higher than it was back in 2011. Is there any idea when it will crest?

    ^Should get some idea of what's coming from this flood watch tool: http://environment.alberta.ca/apps/b...n=4&DataType=1

    The website is slow too load probably due to traffic volumes.

    Close to real time information (about a 3-hour delay). Click on the green dot near Drayton Valley and then compare to the green dot in Edmonton. River levels and flow volumes available in both figure and table formats.

    Suggests to me that water levels in Edmonton have a couple meters more to rise based on what they are at the Drayton Valley bridge.

    I was down at McKinney park last night and there were some ******** jackasses playing around in the flooded promenade. I went onto the pedestrian bridge...the water was a constant loud roar, especially where it was hitting the piers.
