Anyone situated close to the streams affected is advised to be cautious of the rising levels. (Source: http://environment.alberta.ca/0889.html)
The thunder and lightening started early Monday morning in Fox Creek, followed by rain all day and night on July 23. Readers submitted the following photos.
A photo of the rain in a 5 gallon bucket left out on Allan Lariviere’s lawn in Fox Creek, since last Sunday night measured the depth of water. The photo, submitted by Allan Lariviere, was taken about 2 o’clock Tuesday afternoon.
The one picture through the trees is a train trestle on the 947 road, 14 kms southeast of town. There is a train on top loaded with gravel to hold the bridge down between the Athabasca bridge and the bypass road on the SEMCams K3 side. Photos submitted by Geoff Detta.
