A State of Local Emergency (SOLE) has been declared

A State of Local Emergency (SOLE) was declared for the City of Medicine Hat at 8:45 p.m. on Monday, June 17, 2014.

Through the SOLE, City Council's Emergency Operations Committee grants authority to the Director of Emergency Management to fully implement the City's Emergency Response Plan, including property protection measures, evacuation activities, and to exercise powers under the Emergency Management Act.

A SOLE was also declared during the 2013 flood.

Alberta Environment has issued a flood warning for the South Saskatchewan River and a flood watch for tributaries flowing out of the Cypress Hills. River flow rates for the South Saskatchewan River are estimated to reach 5,300 cubic meters per second on Friday June 20, 2014. Alberta Environment will continue to model scenarios and provide river forecasts to the Emergency Operations Centre.

A number of local trails have been closed and evacuations are being considered for some areas at risk of flooding. The public is encouraged to check the City's website, Facebook page and Twitter account (@medicinehatcity) for updated information regularly.

The City has also established a floodline for public inquiries. The line will be staffed from 8 a.m. to midnight effective immediately. The number is 403-525-8600.

The City of Medicine Hat has activated its Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) following information provided by Alberta Environment related to anticipated river levels and flows later in the week for areas of Southern Alberta. These include the South Saskatchewan River and tributaries flowing out of the Cypress Hills (Ross Creek, Seven Persons Creek, and Bullshead Creek). Read More...
Fatal house fire deemed accidental

A house fire that claimed the life of a 62-year-old woman is not considered to be suspicious, according a release made Tuesday by the Medicine Hat Police Service.

The fire on the morning of May 23, 2014 destroyed a home on the 1100 block of Steel Street in the South Flats and killed the woman, who was renting the home with her adult son.

An autopsy was performed on Monday to confirm the identity of the woman and the cause of death.

An investigation by fire and policy investigators has determined that the fire was not deliberately set and there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.

At the request of the family, the victim’s name is being withheld.

Monetary damage is estimated at approximately $200,000.
