Much of southern Alberta is dealing with the havoc of ongoing flooding, and the Calgary Saddledome has been hit hard. The home of the Calgary Roughnecks, along with the National Hockey League’s Flames, filled with over 12 feet of water, according to a story on TSN.ca. The water has ruined the first eight rows of seats, the ice-making plant and the dressing rooms, among other things. “If you were a hockey player walking from the tunnel onto the ice, you would be underwater yourself,” said Flames president Ken King. “It’s very difficult to describe millions of gallons of water, sitting in that building.” It’s too early to assess the damage, as the area is still dealing with the flooding.
