More than 200 people have been evacuated from Red Earth Cree Nation and Shoal Lake Cree Nation.
They were moved out Thursday evening because of flood waters cutting off access to the communities
Rising water levels in the Carrot River have forced Red Earth to remove about 200 residents to Saskatoon while an unknown number of people were taken to Prince Albert from Shoal Lake.
According to a news release from the Prince Albert Grand Council, the flooding in Shoal Lake has washed out two access roads on the reserve,
Shoal Lake has been under a state of emergency since Tuesday.
The provincial Highways Ministry has closed access roads after excessive rainfall caused significant overflows on Highways 55 East and West and the Shoal Lake 28A access road.
An emergency response team has been moved to the community to ensure the health and safety of residents and to monitor water levels and road conditions.
