Weather Alert - East Kootenay

May 11, 2017

Environment Canada has issued a weather alert for our area for showers and thunderstorms. 15 to 25 mm of rain is likely over many regions by Friday morning with the potential for higher amounts affected by severe thunderstorms.

This weather situation combined with spring snow melt will lead to rising river levels and may increase the risk of flooding. Quick flowing water and the adjacent river banks are potentially unsafe. Don't approach washouts near rivers, creeks or culverts, and keep away from creek and river banks.
