Flooding Forces the Evacuation of Auyuittuq National Park  
Unusually warm temperatures coupled with heavy rains caused such extensive flooding in Auyuittuq that 21 hikers had to be evacuated from the park. This follows recent flooding in Pangnirtung that wiped out several bridges. There the flooding bore through the permafrost right down to the bedrock and there was some concern that the entire town could be undermined.
