Anderson Vacations Friday Operation & Flood Update (June 28)

In our continued effort to provide you with updates on the situation in Alberta due to the recent floods, we’re pleased to share with you the following news today from our front. The power was switched on in five more Calgary communities overnight, which means that just three more areas are still without power.

Residents in the Beltline, Elbow Park, Erlton, Riverdale, and Victoria Park now have power, leaving just Cliff Bungalow, East Village, and Mission as the only neighbourhoods in the city suffering from outages. Read more ...

Two lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway are now open between Calgary and Banff to all traffic. Motorists are advised to use caution and obey road signage as driving conditions are not yet back to normal.

"While this is the first step, we are in it for the long haul," said Alberta Transportation Minister Ric McIver.

Officials are warning drivers that the highway is still not in top condition and the speed limit has been lowered to 60 km/h. Read more ...

A number of provincial parks in  Kananaskis Country will be closed this long weekend because they were washed out by flood waters last week. Officials say there has been significant damage to the area and many of the roads and trails are on unstable ground and are not safe. The closures include: Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, Evan Thomas Provincial Recreation Area, where Kananaskis Village is located, Elbow Sheep Wildland Provincial Park and Wyndham Carseland Provincial Park south east of Calgary is closed indefinitely.
