Flood Preparedness Guide

Floods are common in BC and can happen at any time of year. The most
severe floods usually occur in spring and early summer due to heavy
rain and melting snow. They can also be caused by storm surges, ice
jams or damage to structures like dikes or dams.

In some areas of BC, climate change and related extreme weather
events have increased the flood risk. Rising temperatures, changing
freeze-thaw cycles and rising sea levels can all contribute to flooding.
Floods can damage buildings, cause power outages, disrupt
transportation and create landslides. Fast-moving flood waters can
also be a hazard for people.

If you live somewhere that could experience a flood, this guide is a must-
read! It will help you prepare and know what to do if a flood occurs.
