State Of Emergency Declared In CB, Parts of Mainland

The province has declared a state of emergency in all counties in Cape Breton, as well as several counties on the mainland, as it calls for more military support for restoration efforts after storm Fiona.

The province says the Minister responsible for the Emergency Management Office, John Lohr, has asked the military for more help with road work, including flagging and signage, in areas where restoration crews need help.

The state of emergency was enacted today under the Emergency Management Act to allow the military to do civilian road work and provide liability coverage.

A state of emergency remains in effect for 14 days unless the government ends or extends it.

Glace Bay Salvation Army Food Bank Makes Appeal For Donations

The Salvation Army’s Glace Bay emergency food bank is putting out a call for donations as it continues to help people who lost their power in storm Fiona.

The food bank says the increased demand has seen their supply of non-perishable foodstuffs run low.

It’s asking for donations of canned goods, rice, lentils, packaged cookies and wafers, cereal, and any other non-perishable food.

Those donations can be dropped off at the Salvation Army at 40 Union Street in Glace Bay.

Monetary donations can be made on the Salvation Army’s website or by calling 1-866-620-0094.
