Residents in southern Alberta are concerned about flooding in their communities as snow and ice that fell in record amounts for the past few weeks is starting to melt.
Officials with the M.D. of Taber declared a local state of emergency and the province enacted an emergency alert on Friday night because of overland flooding, but the province cancelled that warning on Saturday afternoon as temperatures dropped, slowing the rate of melting.
While some areas are still flooded, it was not as bad as many thought.
Flooding is expected to increase as temperatures start to rise over the next couple of weeks.
