Hundreds of thousands of people in Alberta can't go home and have nothing to take with them thanks to the flooding, but the Red Cross has already sprung into action.
 
If people in Saskatchewan want to help Kim MacLean, the provincial disaster management lead with Canadian Red Cross, said financial donations are best.

"We know, and if you've seen the pictures on the news there is going to be a lot of property damage."
 
She's asking people not to head out to help in person, "there are issues around transportation and people being able to move around, so we're not recommending folk get in their car and drive there."
 
The Red Cross in Alberta has requested help, but Saskatchewan won't be able to shift many resources that way. The Red Cross is still dealing with fallout from flooding in Northern Saskatchewan in the past week.
