It’s the 12th of May and this weekend is when the next expected high water levels should happen. The RDKB.com site’s front page flood info has been expanded and now contains
- an Evacuation Alert for the residents of the Manly Meadows area. We’re also making it available below at the bottom of this post.
- a link to the “Important flood information for natural gas and electricity customers” page at Fortis
- a link to the “Debris Flow Hazard Awareness in the Kootenay Region” document on the RDKB site
The updated May 12 forecast shows newer, lower, numbers for this weekend. Click on the graphic to see a larger version.
The projected averages for Saturday and Sunday have gone down quite a bit from the 9th to the 12th.
On the 9th some values were in the 100 year range but now the worst are in the 10 year range.
These are still forecasts so do not take these values as what will happen and turn your back on the river – be vigilant, be prepared.
