Some rural mail delivery cancelled; will resume when safe

Flooded out communities in southwestern Manitoba and southeastern Saskatchewan at least won't have to worry about soggy packages.

Canada Post said Monday that it was cancelling mail delivery in numerous rural communities, due to the overland flooding and resulting road closures.

People in those areas will not receive mail on Monday. Mail delivery will resume as soon as it is safe to do so, Canada Post said.

Some regions near the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border received between 150–200 mm of rain over the weekend. States of emergency have been declared in more than two dozen Westman communities, and sandbagging continues in some of them.
