Flood Watch Issued May 21, 2023

A Flood Watch has been issued for the Peace Region by the BC River Forecast Centre. This means, with forecasted rain and some high river levels in the region, some rivers may overflow the banks, which could cause flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers.

There is also a potential risk of overland flooding from ditches and other waterways.
