Rachel Notley- PLEASE DECLARE STATE OF EMERGENCY
A PROVINCIAL STATE OF EMERGENCY HAS BEEN DECLARED
**There is also an accident Hwy 881 b/w Lac La Biche & Conklin. Fire has now started in trees. Advised to avoid the area**
Watch for active fires here: http://www.emergencyalert.alberta.ca
Thousands of people are without homes, the fire is growing, the drinking water for those around Fort McMurray is unsafe to drink unless boiled. Thousands, stranded on the highway-relying on good samaritans (nothing that you can take credit for) people without food, fuel, water, homes. It is time to ask for all the help you can get.
We are asking you to declare a state of emergency.
