Federal assistance arrives in B.C. as province starts rebuilding from floods
State Media: "British Columbia has begun the mammoth task of assessing damage to its transportation networks, infrastructure and thousands of properties along the southern part of the province in the wake of devastating floods. The province also expects the death toll to rise. Thousands of people remain out of their homes and thousands of farm animals and livestock were also imperiled as waters washed away homes and left farms under meters of water as the province declared a state of emergency on Wednesday. The flooding was caused by record rainfall last weekend."
