Over 80,000 people have been evacuated from Fort McMurray in Alberta as a spring fire rages through the town.

From what I've heard, 80% of Fort McMurray is already gone.

This is horrible. I look at this and think that 1,000 times my home town population has been evacuated. All these people are looking for a place to stay and may come back to nothing. The displacement numbers are akin to Hurricane Katrina.

I don't think it is quite that bad, but there is at least one community in the city that is supposedly 80% gone. We aren't getting any more info from the town yet...

I'm not completely up to date on the status, but I've heard that as they increase the evacuations, some people have had to relocate twice because they now have to leave the location they were evacuated to.

Yeah the winds shifted and areas that were considered safe were suddenly back in areas at risk.
