Ended - Flood Warning – Pouce Coupe River
UPDATED: 11:00am, July 25th, 2018

The River Forecast Centre is ending the Flood Warning for:

  • Pouce Coupe River below Henderson Creek

In response to the localized storms, the POUCE COUPE RIVER BELOW HENDERSON CREEK (07FD007) has risen rapidly and peaked at a flow over the 100 year return period on Monday. The river level has dropped considerably in the past two days. Based on the current hydrologic modeling, the streamflow is expected to reach the normal level tomorrow. However, the current water level is still relatively high (about the 20 year return period) and the public is cautioned to stay clear of the river and unstable riverbanks within the next few days.

The River Forecast Centre will continue to monitor conditions and update this advisory as conditions warrant.
