Lajambe said McCoy reported in an e mail that there is still much work to be done.

at the shelter I was at were very positive about getting back to their homes, their apartments, and getting their lives back together, said Osborne, 62, in a phone call from Calgary on Thursday.
He said he will be part of a team going door to door to see what help people need and to assess damage to homes.
