Assistance is available for Pontiac residents forced to leave their homes as a result of the dangerously high water level on the Ottawa River.

The Canadian Red Cross are at the Luskville Town Hall to help displaced people find temporary accommodation, plus offering free water and food.

Red Cross agents will be at the community centre from 3 pm to 10 pm tonight (Thursday) and Friday, and from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Meghan Lewis is helping coordinate the municipality's effort to help flood victims. "We are encouraging people to come to the community centre for drinking water as their well water may be contaminated," she told Pontiac2020.ca. "Many people are finding places to stay with family and friends but the Red Cross will help arrange hotel rooms for anyone that needs one. The community centre also has beds set up."

For more information about help from the municipality, call Lewis at the Town Hall at 819 455 2401, extension 122.
