Flood Watch Downgraded to High Streamflow Advisory

Emergency Management would like to share that with the recent cool weather, creek flows have started to come down, and the River Forecast Centre has downgraded the West Kootenay from a Flood Watch to a High Streamflow Advisory.
Water levels have now reached their peak levels from last week’s snowmelt and rainfall over the weekend. Rivers are expected to recede into the middle of the week, but additional rises are expected into next weekend due to increases in higher-elevation snowmelt.
Being near riverbanks, creeks, and fast-flowing bodies of water is dangerous!
➡️ Stay clear of fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks
➡️ Avoid recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, boating or hiking near high-streamflow rivers or streams
➡️ Remember, high streamflow can easily trap strong swimmers, increasing the risk of drowning
➡️ Keep a close eye on children and pets!
During a High Streamflow Advisory, conditions can change quickly. Understand the risks and get prepared by visiting
