Homes evacuated, damaged on Peguis First Nation (Video)

Flooding on Peguis First Nation has forced the evacuation of 34 people from the community and damaged 50 homes.

Water levels appeared to have crested Saturday, but the Manitoba government has sent 100 Tiger Tube dams to assist in flood-fighting efforts.

The federal government and the community are managing the situation, and evacuations are being coordinated by the Manitoba Association of Native Firefighters.

The Province has also issued a flood warning to communities along the Birdtail Creek, including, Birtle, which is about 150 kilometers northwest of Brandon.

Officials say a large ice jam near a rail bridge is holding back a significant amount of water — which could cause a large surge of water pouring into the creek once the ice does let go.

People living nearby are preparing to leave quickly.
