An expansion to the evacuation order has been recommended by Westrek Geotechnical Services to include the islands south of Old Fort. The main slide has already impacted one of the islands and recent changes and new information regarding the west slide indicates potential for increased mobilization and depth of failure. This area is considered to be at risk with respect to public safety and it is recommended that no access be allowed. Once the LiDAR analysis has been completed, a more thorough understanding of the size of the slide and potential risk area will be available. A team of experts from Westrek Geotechnical and the Ministry of FLNRORD are working on the analysis and will provide an update as soon as possible.
