High Streamflow Advisory: Kingcome River and Klinaklini River
ISSUED: 16:25 August 21, 2020
The River Forecast Centre is issuing a High Streamflow Advisory for:
- The Kingcome River and surrounding areas
- The Klinaklini River and tributaries
A low-pressure system has been moving over coastal B.C. last night and this morning. The water level of the Kingcome River has been rising rapidly this morning and is currently at the 7.277 metre level, which is slightly below the 2-year return period level. The current hydrological modeling indicates that further rising in the river level is possible. The Klinaklini River has also been rising rapidly this morning and is currently running at a flow between the 2 and 5-year return periods. Further rising is also possible.
The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high-streamflow period.
The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor the conditions and provides updates as conditions warrant.
