It's been just over a week since post-tropical storm Fiona ravaged Atlantic Canada.

Frank King with Samaritan's Purse says they got set up in PEI a couple days after the storm and considering the amount of damage they don't expect to be leaving soon.

"Our Canadian disaster relief manager is expecting us to be working in that whole Charlottetown region for at least six weeks, but it all depends on how many people need our help and how many volunteers come out," he says.

They're looking to get volunteers who are already in that area.

King says they're providing the same sort of support as they did in High River after the 2013 flood but on a much bigger scale.

"That can mean removing trees off of property because as you may have seen trees are downed everywhere and some of downed on top of houses. We've got a video guy on the ground within a couple of days and in our communications with him he has said that the damage is far worse than we can imagine and that even the media is capable of showing us."
