The Municipality of Pontiac has updated its information on its Facebook page, concerning the floods and the situation on its territory, still in a state of emergency. Given the high-water level, which is expected to increase over the next few days, the municipality is maintaining evacuations and asking citizens not to remove the sandbags that protect their homes.
Undocumented victims are asked to come to the Luskville Community Center to register (between 9 am and 6 pm, Thursday and Friday). Volunteers will be on hand to greet them and direct them to appropriate services, including the Red Cross for accommodation and the CISSSO for psychological assistance. Forms will also be made available to residents to enable them to apply for financial assistance from the Quebec Ministry of Public Security.
Regarding the collection of waste in the municipality of Pontiac, patience is required for the moment, the time that the municipal team announces a plan of action for this purpose.
