BC officials give update on dramatic flooding, mudslides | LIVE
CA, 16 Nov 2021
Officials are set to deliver an update on Monday regarding British Columbia's flooding, mudslide and rockslide problem challenging the province.
Flooding has forced the evacuation of the entire community of Merritt, B.C. On Monday morning, the city announced an evacuation order had been issued.
Residents were being asked to stay with friends or family if possible, or to go to the Emergency Social Support reception centres in Kamloops and Kelowna.
And all major east-west routes in and out of the Lower Mainland closed Sunday evening as a result. DriveBC warned motorists of “multiple closures” due to mudslides, rock debris and flooding in the Fraser Valley, Fraser Canyon, Hope area and Coquihalla Highway.
Plus, drivers were urged to avoid any unnecessary travel and to check DriveBC before hitting the road, given that “conditions are dynamic.”
