Even grocery stores, which were completely emptied, have had to close their doors in the past few days.

Shortages have hit the county a day ago, as it struggles with major floods hampering travel and supplies.

The emergency decrees regulating the supply of gasoline went into effect in the governorate on Friday.

Thus, it is impossible to replenish empty shelves.

Families living on Vancouver Island admit that this shortage is ubiquitous.

“People were very tired and wanted to stock up, so they depleted very quickly. Within two days, there were several grocery stores left with nothing left,” says Vancouver Catherine Arsenault.

The situation is likely to continue to deteriorate, at least in the short term, as it may take a few days for supplies to resume.
