ISSUED: June 13, 2017 9:45 AM

The River Forecast Centre is ending a Flood Watch and High Streamflow Advisory for:

  • South Peace Region and surrounding areas including Pine Pass and tributaries around Tumbler Ridge, Chetwynd, and Mackenzie
  • Fraser River through Hansard, Shelley and Prince George

River levels have been dropping across the region and are below levels of concern. Conditions are expected to continue to improve through the week.

The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor conditions and will update the advisory 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.
