Flood Warnings and Advisories
ENDED- High Streamflow Advisory – Fraser River
ISSUED: June 15, 2017 9:30 AM
The River Forecast Centre is ending a High Streamflow Advisory for:
- Fraser River including areas of the main stem river from the Fraser Canyon downstream to the ocean
River levels along the lower Fraser River peaked on Tuesday-Wednesday and are now receding. Flows are expected to continue to decline through the rest of the week. A return to high flows (eg. greater than 9,000 m3/s at Hope or 5.5m at Mission) again this season is unlikely.
The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor river levels 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.
