More than 40 houseboats in Langley are still without power, and residents say they’re desperate.
Gary Steel, who lives on the Fraser River near the Golden Ears Bridge, says there’s no power and toilets aren’t working.
“Our water comes from a well, so everybody right now who has water that comes from a well, who is still without power, hasn’t had water since Saturday at 11:45 (a.m.).”
Steel tearfully told CKNW he’s called BC Hydro several times a day, begging them to come and help.
“And all I get is the stock message, ‘You’ll be re-connected in 12 hours,’ but that’s just an estimate and this is Day Four!”
