Caldwell Road residents face rising waters of Elizabeth Lake

Deb Kopak, a resident of Caldwell Road, is pictured by her property just outside Cranbrook, which is rapidly getting inundated by the rising waters of Elizabeth Lake. In recent days Kopak has had to evacuate her horses and move vehicles off of the backyard property as quickly as possible before they are trapped. The households along Caldwell Road say they have never seen the water rising so high and so quickly. - Barry Coulter photo
