Flooding forced the western Canadian city of Calgary to order the evacuation of the entire downtown area Friday, as the waters reached the 10th row of the city's hockey arena. Communities throughout southern Alberta are dealing with overflowing rivers that have washed out roads and bridges, inundated homes and turned streets into dirt-brown tributaries. About 350,000 people work in downtown Calgary on a typical day. (Jeff McIntosh / The Canadian Press)
