The residents of Mud Lake are finally getting help after being stranded for almost three weeks.
Dave Raeburn is a resident of the community.
He says due to the mild temperatures the river opened-up and residents weren’t able to get across.
There was too much ice to get across by speedboat and too little ice to make the trip by snowmobile.
Raeburn says a helicopter has been stationed in the community since yesterday.
The provincial government provided the chopper to aid the community’s residents.
He says supplies are being flown in twice a day.
The helicopter is also carrying 5 to 6 passengers to Happy Valley-Goose Bay for Christmas shopping.
Raeburn says students will be flown into the community for the holidays on Friday.
