The city of Calgary is experiencing some horrendous flooding. The Scotiabank Saddledome, where the Calgary Flames play, has been flooded as well.

Reportedly the arena has been filled all the way to the 10th row according to CBS Sports. The locker rooms have sustained heavy damage, the jumbo torn room and all of its equipment has been destroyed according to Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun.

As of right now the Calgary Flames have directed employees not to go to the Saddledome.

Eric Francis also notes that the Flames “were close to announcing plans for new arena. The massive flooding of the dome will now play a role in discussion.”
