Communities east and north of Saskatoon, Sask. have declared a state of emergency as flood waters continue to rise on both rivers and lakes.
Provincial officials confirmed on Saturday tht 16 communities and rural municipalities are in a state of emergency throughout the province's central region.
"There's significant localized flooding. Waldsea Lake itself is rising, similar situation to Fishing Lake area, and there are a number of cabins there that are being impacted or are going to be," King said.
"The water is now up the dykes, in some areas spilling over some of the dikes. They have crews there that are doing the sandbagging," Richard Kent of Prince Albert Grand Council told CTV News.
