2 Months Later, Perth-Andover Still In Trouble

The flood-ravaged northwestern village of Perth Andover still struggling with major damage just over two months after the worst flood in its history.

Bill Lawlor of the Canadian Red Cross tells CHSJ News while the government's response has been swift, the villagers are still frustrated with the long wait times associated with disaster financial aid. He says no matter how quickly the government can respond to trauma, it's still a long process to get the claims assessed.

Although most of the schools have re-opened, the hospital remains closed and over 100 households remain displaced.
