Update...

90,000 evacuated many home, whole subdivisions gone. Like a war zone.Over 9 billion estimated Insurable loss and counting.

This is worst disaster ever in Canada.

People that have tents and trailers are camping now were they can find a place.

Some of the footage is scary driving thru walls of fire to escape.

It is pretty surreal for sure. Hopefully the weather turns and we get a break soon.

I checked the member database and found that we have fifteen FROG families registered from Fort McMurray. Prayers for them and the entire community in this tragedy.

Could be months to extinguish. We, like most communities in Alberta, have displaced evacuees staying in our town. Hard to imagine what they have been through, and the road is far from over.

Newly settled refugees here are more than willing to help you the country that gave them home and freedom! Same here in Waterloo Region, 6000 people settled here many new residents are helping stuff trucks with needed items.

In the southern part of North Dakota you can see the haze at times.

It's not getting better they are shutting down and evacuating some oil producers today like Suncor and Syncrude. Evacuating 8000 employees today. A work camp was also lost to the fire.
