Flood Warnings and Advisories
Maintained: Northeast Region: High Streamflow Advisory – Quesnel River
Updated: 11:58 July 24, 2020
The River Forecast Centre is maintaining the High Streamflow Advisory for:
- The Quesnel River
The Quesnel River has responded to the thunderstorms yesterday and this morning, which have slowed down the dropping trend in the flow. The QUESNEL RIVER NEAR QUESNEL (08KH006) is currently flowing at a flow slightly above the 5-year return period level and the QUESNEL RIVER AT LIKELY (08KH001) is running at a flow slightly over the 10-year return period. Based on the latest hydrological modeling, the flows are expected to be stable at these levels for the weekend and then drop further next week.
The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-river-level period.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and provides updates as conditions warrant.
