More than 1,000 people have been affected by flooding in northwestern Alberta.

A spokesperson with Alberta Municipal Affairs said Monday there are currently two states of local emergency in place due to localized flooding in communities in northwestern Alberta.

“They are for Chateh in the Dene Tha’ First Nation and the other is for Little Red River Cree with the John D’or Prairie band council,” Scott Johnston said.

“Roughly 1,100 people have been affected by the flooding,” Johnston said in a statement just after 12:15 p.m. Monday.

Most evacuees were sent to hotels in High Level. However, the mayor said there weren’t enough hotel rooms for everyone, so about 150 people are staying at the town’s arena.
