Title: Moving ice jam on the Athabasca River

Description: This photo from 24 April 2020 shows a flowing ice run (moving ice jam) that raised water levels and caused flooding of areas adjacent to the river, upstream of Fort McMurray. This ice jam caused water levels in Fort McMurray to begin to rise on 26 April 2020. The direction of flow is from right to top.
