estuary, sk

A rancher in the Estuary area, close to the South Saskatchewan River, is surrounded by water from the swollen river.

Ian Ferguson has already moved his cattle to higher ground, but water has inundated his barn and corrals.

In some spot the water is almost two metres deep.

"If it comes up very much farther, I guess we just leave and let the water do what it does," Ferguson said, noting his house is surrounded by water.

He said he is bracing for the worst since more water is expected as the flood surge from Alberta makes its way through the Saskatchewan river system.
