Roads and basements became flooded after a downpour of at least 130 millimetres in just over two hours.
Estevan’s EMO Coordinator Helen Fornwald says a Flood Relief Centre has been set up and is being run by the Red Cross.
“They’re issuing clean-up kits, as well as packages from Public Health on dealing with after-flooding and Occupational Health and Safety regulations for mold.”
Fornwald says the City’s main concern right now is restoring power to hard hit areas and the clean-up of basements, roads and infrastructure.
In the meantime, many other communities throughout Saskatchewan are dealing with flooded streets and basements as heavy rain continues to pound the area.
Environment Canada says the rain is expected to continue into Tuesday and could cause flash floods, water pooling on roads and flooding in low-lying areas.
And even parts of northern Saskatchewan have been hit, with a secondary highway near La Ronge being washed out, and a state of emergency being declared in Carrot River.
Saskatchewan emergency management commissioner Duane McKay says communities should be prepared and the provincial disaster team is ready to go in and help where needed.
