So far so good for emergency crews as they brace for raging rivers in Saskatchewan.

Cumberland house is still the main priority where crews are working around the clock.

Another problem today is rain.

It is causing problems not only in Cumberland house but in other remote northern communities which could soon experience flooding.

The levels of the Montreal and Churchill rivers are on the rise because of the rain.

Duane Mckay, the Commissioner of Emergency Planning, says it is a new area of concern that is being closely monitored.

“So we will be in contact with La Ronge, Air Ronge and the bands there so that the impacts can be mitigated as well. Typically in that area there might be some concerns about the bridge at Air Ronge.”

Still the focus of attention remains Cumberland House and the Cumberland House Cree Nation.

A crew of about 100 is working 24 hours a day to make sure the community is protected when the lake peaks.

Several layers of protection are being built, including numerous berms to protect critical infrastructure.

The work is expected to be complete by Monday.
