Flooding In Saskatchewan Looks Pretty Crazy (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Flooding in Saskatchewan has washed out roads, flooded basements, and forced one town to evacuate.

At the time of this writing, 36 communities are under a state of emergency, according to the Regina Leader-Post. The town of Gainsborough is under a mandatory evacuation order.

The Saskatchewan government has sent flood-control teams to several areas as heavy rains continue to fall.

In Regina, the fire department has asked residents to limit water use.

A meteorologist with Environment Canada told the Leader-Post the rain is expected to ease up soon, but for now, people are sharing some pretty dramatic photos.
