Brace for more flooding with rain on the way

The Village of Lumby emergency personnel are warning residents who live near creeks to prepare for possible floods because of expected rains starting Thursday May 11, 2017.

"We've just had really ongoing wet weather through the spring ... We came into that cycle last week with a lot of snow melt and a lot of rain which saturated soils and really led to some dramatic conditions," explained David Campbell, the head of the B.C. River Forecast Centre.

Campbell says more rain will start coming in on Thursday May 11, 2017.  He expects a very similar type of response as last weekend where the Village of Lumby saw unprecedented flooding in Lumby.

The Village of Lumby is advising residents to be prepared for unpredictable weather events which could cause further flooding. 

The Province of British Columbia released an Information Bulletin urging caution for B.C. residents experiencing flooding.
