British Columbia, Canada declares a state of emergency due to flooding

Canada:  The government of British Columbia has declared a state of emergency in the Pacific province owing to floods and mudslides induced by recent rainstorms. Premier John Horgan of British Columbia made the announcement at a news conference on Wednesday.

"Heavy rains, high winds, and flooding have wreaked havoc across our province." According to sources, the designation provides the province a lot of powers, including the ability to halt hoarding and restrict passage in and out of flood zones. "The order will ensure that communities across the province have basic access to services and supplies," Horgan said.

Thousands of people have been displaced from their homes in southern British Columbia, and one woman has been confirmed dead. "Unfortunately, more fatalities are expected to be confirmed in the coming days," he continued. The Premier stated that he has spoken with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and that his government has now formally requested Canadian military assistance. He claimed that the Trudeau government, as well as the governments of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario, have expressed interest in assisting his province.
