Evacuation alert issued for one property 20 km north of Williams Lake

The alert was issued by the CRD late Thursday afternoon

Update:

High water levels of Deep Creek is the reason a property 20 kilometres north of Williams Lake remains under evacuation alert.

“It is due to undercutting caused by Deep Creek being so high,” said Stuart Larson, manager of protection services for the Cariboo Regional District on Friday morning. “Like many other waterways, Deep Creek is running high and fast.”

Original:

With an evacuation alert, residents should be prepared to evacuate.

Residents are encouraged to register for the Cariboo Chilcotin Emergency Notification System to receive a text, call or e-mail regarding Evacuation Alerts and Orders.

The CRD noted in news release that more information will be provided once it becomes available.
