At least 3 people have been killed and more than a 100,000 forced to flee their homes as floods triggered by torrential rain hit western Canada.

 

Officials have ordered the evacuation of the centre of Calgary, Alberta, after both rivers that flow through it, the Bow and Elbow, overflowed.

 

The floods have washed away roads and bridges, cut-off electricity and submerged hundreds of homes.

 

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper toured flood-damaged areas on Friday.

 

He has promised federal assistance for those affected.
