Saskatchewan flood cleanup un­der­way

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Flood re­sponse has shifted to recovery mode in Saskatchewan com­mu­ni­ties hit hard by heavy rain­fall ear­lier this week.

Emer­gency man­age­ment com­mis­sioner Duane McKay says the amount of dam­age will be de­ter­mined over the next week or so as peo­ple get back into their homes.

More than 100 mil­lime­tres of rain fell in sev­eral places Mon­day and Tues­day from the south­west cor­ner of Saskatchewan through to the north­east.

Four Saskatchewan com­mu­ni­ties — the towns of Car­rot River and Ar­bor­field, the Ru­ral Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Ar­bor­field and the Shoal Lake Cree Na­tion — re­main un­der states of emer­gency, but the town of Ar­bor­field has lifted an emer­gency evac­u­a­tion no­tice.
