In June of 2013 High River Alberta was hit with the largest flood they have ever seen.  Residents were kicked out of the town, and didn't get back in for anywhere from 10 days to a month, depending on where their house was.

Marilyn and Eric were displaced for 15 days, they returned home to find that their basement had been full of water, roughly 7 feet of water, destroying their personal and business records, antiques, memories, food stores , furniture and generally over half their possessions. 

The requirements were that anything that the water/sewage had come in contact with had to be thrown out due to contamination.  All walls had to be removed, all flooring removed, all electrical, heating and plumbing removed and will need to not only be replaced but upgraded to lift liens the government will be placing on their property until it is restored.  Once the walls were removed they found that the force of the flooding has destroyed the foundation walls and they will need to lift the house and  pour new foundation walls in order to meet code.

They have been displaced from thier home for 90 days, at this point as it is not safe to live in.  They can't sell the property as it needs all these repairs, and are living in their son's house while still paying a mortgage on their property and rent to thier son so that they can keep his house in good standing as he has had to defer selling his original property to move into his new home while they wait to see what will happen with Eric and Marilyn's house.

Its a huge expense to lift the house and repour the walls.  But with help perhaps we can get them into their house as quickly as we can.  Any little bit helps.
