Rising water levels has prompted a Saskatchewan First Nation to take action.
The province said leadership in Red Earth made the decision to evacuate around 200 “health priority” individuals from the community Thursday afternoon.
The First Nation is located around 225 kilometres northeast of Prince Albert.
“This action was taken in response to rising water levels along the Carrot River that may affect emergency access to the community,” the province said in a news release July 14.
The evacuees were taken to Saskatoon, and housed at the Hank Reys Soccer Centre overnight.
Some of the people were sheltered in hotels.
The Government of Saskatchewan is working closely with the community to provide additional support as required through emergency management, ESS and Health.
