The salmon producer, based in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick, said it is sending a truck loaded with 10,000 sand bags to help protect the affected village from rising floodwaters.

Cooke said it also has boats and equipment on standby to assist if needed and is in daily contact with an emergency measures organization.
