From the Fort McMurray Today Newspaper

Up to 15,000 Fort McMurray residents had been forced to leave their homes by Monday evening, the situation worsening during the pandemic after the rivers surrounding the city began flooding early Sunday morning.

More than 5,000 people have registered at evacuation centres. Emergency crews have also performed more than 200 rescues in areas where people were ordered to leave.“Our emergency response crews have been working night and day to help with our residents to get to those safe places,” said Fire Chief Jody Butz in a statement. “We will continue to do that, but I need all of our residents to pay attention to those mandatory evacuation orders.”No one knows when residents will be able to return home.
