Canadian Coast Guard providing support to areas hit by flooding
The Canadian Coast Guard is delivering goods to portions of southwestern Newfoundland that were cut off when roads washed out from a storm last week.
With the deployment of a Bell 412 helicopter along with members of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Government of Canada is providing support following a request from the provincial government.
Repairs have been made on the Trans-Canada Highway in southwestern Newfoundland to allow traffic to flow as of today at two of the four damaged areas. Repairs are continuing in other areas.
