What happened in an affluent suburb after the flood came

Business Insider Logo By Dennis Green of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 22:  In June 2013, heavy rains led to a flood in the Canadian province of Alberta, causing an  estimated 6 billion Canadian dollars ($4.3 billion) in property damage. One of the hardest-hit areas was the town of High River, a suburb of Calgary. In Beachwood Estates, a High River neighborhood full of million-dollar homes, floodwaters rose so high that residents had to abandon their properties, according to  The Calgary Herald. The photographer Seph Lawless documented the homes before they were sold or demolished earlier in 2017. He captured them, abandoned and eerie, awaiting their fate.
