A search and rescue boat carries rescued passengers from a flooded industrial site near highway 543 north of High River, Alberta, Canada on Friday, June 21, 2013. The rescued passengers spent the night moored on a structure they built in the water. Calgary's mayor said Friday the flooding situation in his city is as under control as it can be, for now. Officials estimated 75,000 people have been displaced in the western Canadian city. Mayor Naheed Nenshi said the Elbow River, one of two rivers that flow through the southern Alberta city, has peaked. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Jordan Verlage)

As water levels dropped in Calgary, Canada residents returned to waterlogged homes on June 24 to assess the damage from flooding that has devastated much of Alberta, causing at least three deaths and forcing thousands to evacuate. But in Medicine Hat, Alberta, thousands of people have left their homes as water levels rose on the South Saskatchewan River. (AP)
