Seven homes in Fort Good Hope have been affected by flooding as waters continue to rise.
Roger Plouffe, Fort Good Hope’s director of emergency services, says the residents of the homes have already been moved to high ground.
This was one of the measures taken weeks ago in preparation of possible flooding.
He says the ramparts have broken and waters from the Mackenzie River and Jackfish (Fiddlestick) Creek have connected.
CKLB’s Judi Kochon is in Fort Good Hope.
She says the baseball field is flooded and ice has been backing into the creek.
Kochon adds many members of the community say they have never seen the ice move so fast.
