The rain has stopped, but the risk of flooding in Minden Hills continues. A state of emergency was called in the township over the weekend because of widespread flooding.

Reeve Brent Devolin says the rate of water increase is slowing, but the levels haven’t reached their highest point yet.

Devolin says that’s starting to happen now. He says once the water does crest, levels will still be very high in the area.

There is an emergency operation centre at the Nesbitt Centre set up, with sandbagging operations, and a Red Cross station for anyone who has been displaced. The Food Bank is also there for anyone who needs it.

Anyone looking to volunteer or help out can contact Dawn Newhook, the township’s Clerk at (705) 286 1260, or by email at
