-The flooding situation in some parts of rural Alberta continues—as heavy snow left over from the winter continues to melt. Several counties and communities, along with First Nations have been affected–with homes and businesses being threatened by approaching water. And a lot of roads have washed out as well. Officials say no one should try driving through the water—because there could be something under it that could cause all sorts of problems to your vehicle.
