East Kootenays Under High Streamflow Advisory

JUN 2, 2017

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the East Kootenay region.

A High Streamflow Advisory means that river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected. Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible.

The City of Fernie has closed a section of trail in James White Park due to water in that area. The portion closed is from the ball fields to the railway crossing at Mt. Mclean St. and Cokato Rd.

In the event we experience significant rainfall over the coming days, a sandbagging station has been set up at the City of Fernie Public Works Yard, 1492 Railway Avenue.

All residents are asked to please respect signage and exercise caution around fast-moving water.
