Fort McMurray Evacuation Mandatory

The municipality of Fort McMurray in northeastern Alberta is now under mandatory evacuation. With a population of 60,000 people, this is the largest evacuation due to a forest fire in Alberta’s history. This is the evacuation notice:

I can’t imagine what it’s like to have your home threatened like this. But an entire city is threatened. And Tracey, I’m glad you’re not there at the moment.

If any of you are in the area, stay safe. But you probably aren’t reading this, you’re probably evacuating.
