Tomorrow marks the five-year anniversary of the Calgary floods.

Billions in damage was done to Calgary and surrounding area in the second-most costly disaster in Canadian history behind the Fort McMurray fires.

Rather than recount the events and tell you once again what’s been done and what hasn’t been done, we figured we could test your knowledge of those events five years ago, and ask a few questions about what’s been done to prevent the damage from flooding in the future.

It’s 15 questions – but we think you’ll have fun with the answers and maybe learn one or two things along the way.
