Program Director from our sister station Cruz FM Andrew Wilcox is touring the Fort McMurray area this afternoon with a bus full of members of the media.
Wilcox says there is devastation in Beacon Hill and it’s tough to see.
He says others with him are in shock at what they’re seeing. He says it’s odd to have an understanding of what was there compared to what is left.
Wilcox says there’s little left of Centennial Park. He adds the vegetation, trees, and bush are burned, but the days is fairly clear. He says the air is a little bit smoky.
He says Gregoire is there, residential and commercial, so there’s some hope.
Wilcox says there are a number of power, water, natural gas crews in order to get essential services running again.
