This week’s storm pattern has ended. Rainfall totals from Monday through Thursday ranged from 50 to 200 mm on Vancouver Island and the South Coast. The highest totals were observed on the North Shore Mountains. Rivers rose rapidly but did not reach flood levels and remained below 2-year return period flows.
River levels are receding and are below levels of concern.
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.
