2. One of the people caught in the initial deluge was Kevan Yaets.
3. He crawled out the back of his pick-up truck, only to lose hold of his cat Momo.
4. Despite the very real danger of being swept away and drowning, Kevan swam after Momo…
5. And saved the cat’s life.
Not that it’s a happy ending for all. Calgary city officials say as many as 100,000 people could be forced from their homes due to heavy flooding in western Canada, while mudslides have forced the closure of the Trans-Canada Highway around the mountain resort towns of Banff and Canmore.
