Saskatchewan flood cleanup underway
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.
