The 200 residents of Vanguard in southwestern Saskatchewan were told not to drink the water after a storm dumped over 300-millimetres of rain in the region. The Highways Department used gravel trucks to ferry bottled water to the community because they were the only vehicles big enough to clear the flood of water flowing down the community's streets. The town was cut off with the major highway flooded. Dorothy Saunderson said local grocery stores had been hard hit.
