The grounds of the Calgary Stampede remain under water after they were flooded in Calgary, Alberta June 22, 2013. The flooding Bow River shut down all of the centre of Calgary, Canada's oil capital, and will remind closed until mid week. The flood forced tens of thousands of residents to leave their soggy homes. Heavy rain also closed roads and brought down bridges elsewhere in the province of Alberta, and there are reports of up to 4 deaths from the flooding. Many communities across southern Alberta are on mandatory evacuation orders because of severe flooding. REUTERS/Melissa Renwick (CANADA - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT) - RTX10XQ1
