BC floods: Next 10 days could be challenging with another storm coming, minister says | FULL
CA, 24 Nov 2021
Many parts of B.C. could be facing another challenging stretch of weather in the next nine to 10 days, Deputy Premier Mike Farnworth said Tuesday.
While many areas continue to rebuild and repair from the previous storm, more wet and windy weather is concerning for crews working around the clock to fix dikes, roads and homes, he said.
“We are a resilient province,” Farnworth said.
“The size of the fight we are in together is significant. It’s enormous.”
Farnworth said more than 6,500 evacuees have registered with the province so far and more than 120 military troops are working in Abbotsford to help build up the infrastructure.
The next storm is expected to hit overnight Wednesday. Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, particularly near the mountains. It will also impact the Sea to Sky corridor and the Sunshine Coast from Gibsons to Earls Cove.
