Canadian Town Evacuated

Posted: Updated:

Residents of the town of Gainsborough in southeastern Saskatchewan have been told to evacuate due to flooding caused by the weekend of heavy rains.

The Carnduff Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a mandatory evacuation order for Gainsborough Sunday night after water poured over a dam on the Gainsborough Creek near the town of Redvers.

It's important to note that the problems with that dam will have no impact on the Mouse River in North Dakota.

In addition to the evacuation of Gainsborough, several highways in southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba are closed because of water running over the roadways.
