CALGARY - About 125 people are out of their homes in Calgary after serious structural issues were discovered in a seven-storey apartment building.

City of Calgary spokesman Wayne Brown says an inspection revealed problems with floor slabbing and some balconies.

Brown says engineers believed the issues were serious enough that people needed to be removed from the building right away.

The building is in the Kensington area of Calgary.

The city says it will be putting supports in place.

The Calgary Emergency Management Agency has set up a shelter inside a nearby school for anyone needing a place to stay.
