In the South Thompson River and it’s tributaries, including Shuswap Lake, the Salmon River and the Adams River, peak levels from this rainfall have not yet been reached. Flows on the South Thompson River and on Shuswap Lake are expected to peak later Tuesday or into Wednesday and remain elevated through the week.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the situation and provides updates as conditions warrant.
