Flood Warnings and Advisories

ENDED - High Streamflow Advisory: South Coast
ISSUED: February 17, 2017 2:30PM

The BC River Forecast Centre is ending a High Streamflow Advisory for:

  • Chilliwack River and tributaries

Levels on the Chilliwack River and tributaries have passed peak levels, and are expected to continue to decline through the rest of Friday and into the weekend.
The public is cautioned to stay clear of rivers and riversides during the high streamflow period because the quickly flowing water and the adjacent riverbanks are potentially unsafe.


The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor weather and streamflow and will provide updates as conditions warrant.

 

 A High Streamflow Advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.
 A Flood Watch means that river levels are rising and will approach or may exceed bankfull.  Flooding of areas adjacent to affected rivers may occur.
 A Flood Warning means that river levels have exceeded bankfull or will exceed bankfull imminently, and that flooding of areas adjacent to the rivers affected will result.
