Calgary Saddledome Suffered Major Damage From Flooding

via the CP at Sportsnet,

The Calgary Flames say everything below row eight in the hockey team’s home arena has been ruined by flooding.

Team president Ken King calls it a total loss — dressing rooms, players’ equipment, seats, boards and scoreboard electronics.

King says a player coming out on the ice right now would be completely submerged.

He wouldn’t estimate what the repair cost will be, but he believes everything will be covered by insurance.

King says crews have a lot of work ahead of them to be ready for the upcoming season.

You can also watch a video of Ken King going into much more detail on the flooding situation.

I wonder if it’s feasible construction-wise to not have these arenas partially underground like most are.

My condolences to those who have lost homes and loved ones. I know Calgarians will rally and make this great city better than before.
