Fifty people have been evacuated from the Poundmaker First Nation as water continues to rise in the community near Cut Knife.

About 15 families were relocated from Poundmaker to Cut Knife and North Battleford.

Elders and people whose homes are in imminent danger were moved to nearby cities and towns on Monday.

Duane Antoine, chief of Poundmaker, said flooding could get worse when the weather warms up.

"Everything is good right now," Antoine said. "It's stable. But once it warms up again, the creek could rise again."

Cut Knife creek rose quickly over the weekend, causing a water main break.

Residents said the water started to rise on Sunday and several roads have water spilling over them. Some houses now have water right up to the front doors.

Antoine said the Red Cross and provincial employees have both been out to help.

State of emergency

The number of Saskatchewan communities under a state of emergency continued to grow Tuesday afternoon.

Flood officials said the Rural Municipalities (RM) of Great Bend and Elfros had added themselves to the list.

Great Bend is the RM around Radisson and Borden, which are dealing with flooding now. Elfros is about 23 kilometres east of Wynyard.

Officials expect more states of emergency to be declared later on Tuesday.
