There’s an urgent appeal for volunteers in Cherry Creek.
Victoria Braun has been helping sandbagging efforts on Beaton Road since the weekend, and says, water is beginning to go through some homes and garages.
“Its coming up really fast actually. Beaton Road is closed because its coming up over the road, and its quite fast over the road.”
She says what’s needed right now, aside from bodies to help fill and move sandbags, is water and food for volunteers who are working in heat.
Jeremy Tilbert says, they have several trucks, but not enough people to fill them with sandbags.
“If people could head to the Cherry Creek Ranch, that would be the best staging area, thats got the most room for parking, and just for all the bodies that might show up.”
The Cherry Creek Ranch is at 5420 Trans-Canada Highway.
