Saskatchewan has a tiny new evacuee after Cassandra Clarke gave birth to a baby girl.
Annie Flora Lee Clarke was born at 4:16 a.m. in Prince Albert.
Cassandra, her husband Edmund and 10-year-old daughter Caitlyn have been staying with family since being evacuated 16 days ago.
The Clarke family was prepared for a new baby in La Ronge but left most of their baby supplies behind during the evacuation.
“We were prepared at home and then we left everything there. We were staying in Birch Hills at my friend’s place for the first 12 days. The community got together and donated some stuff. My husband’s brother had a bunch of donations as well. We’ve been helped quite a bit already,” she said.
Cassandra and Edmund had just finished watching a movie on Tuesday night when her water broke. Three hours later, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
She said while they have enough supplies, the family is anxious to get back home.
“It’s lonely,” she said.
