CANADA: What is the damage? Help from Ottawa: .... to match donations......

What is the damage? 
An estimated 1,600 structures have burned in Fort McMurray. There were no updates to that figure as of Sunday morning, with authorities saying that fire officials did not have time to make that assessment. 
But officials have said that, even though the fire has largely pushed through Fort McMurray, the town is still too dangerous to enter. The city’s gas has been turned off, its power grid is damaged, and the water is undrinkable. Provincial officials said displaced people would be better off driving to cities such as Calgary, where health and social services were better. 
The first images from inside the Fort McMurray neighbourhood of Beacon Hill show the damage and devastation from wildfires that rolled through the city earlier this week. .
