On June 20th a horrible event occurred and left the Town of Canmore in a State of Emergency. The rains came down and the snow melt happened creating the perfect creek washout. The water flowed down Cougar Creek and started to do its damage. The unfortunate thing is it started to effect the residents in the whole town especially on the creeks edge. Last year the storm occurred around June 6th and had its way taking out some of the walking path and creek bottom. Watch here to see last years clip I shot.


This year it was a whole new disaster.  Many people left the Cougar Creek area to safer locations and being a resident just down the road ( not affected ) I felt I needed to capture and document this sad event. Here is another video posted of stuff floating away
