Yesterday at 6:20 PM a mandatory evacuation order was issued for the city of Fort McMurray. Crews have been working around the clock to extinguish the blaze, but conditions could worsen again today. Camps around the area are being evacuated and more than 80 thousand people have been displaced.
For those who would like to help in terms of supplies or to volunteer or for those from the community who have specific needs, please visit the Fort McMurray Recovers page.
