FLOOD WATCH ALERT!


There is currently a High Streamflow Advisory for the South Thompson River, issued at 8:00 a.m. June 13, 2022.

The River Forecast Centre is upgrading to a Flood Watch for:

• Shuswap Region including South Thompson River tributaries (Seymour River, Eagle River, Adams River, Shuswap River and surrounding tributaries).

The River Forecast Centre is maintaining a High Streamflow Advisory for:

• South Thompson River. Snowmelt at most elevations through the upper reaches of the South Thompson have raised stream levels through the region.

Streamflow and water levels are at or approaching 2-year flows in many of the tributaries, including the Adams River near Squilax, Seymour River near Seymour Arm, Eagle River near Malakwa, Shuswap River near Enderby, and Shuswap Lake and the South Thompson at Chase.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for the region, anticipating prolonged rainfall Monday into Tuesday, with precipitation totals the 20 to 40 mm, and potentially more over higher terrain.

River levels are expected to see increased rates of rise later Monday and into Tuesday in response to on-going snowmelt and additional runoff from rainfall, and later into the week for lake-fed river systems.

On the South Thompson River, on-going moderate rises are expected through the week. The public is advised to stay clear of the fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks during the high streamflow period.
