Floods: Evacuation orders remain in effect in B.C.’s central Interior

Flooding in parts of B.C.’s Interior has caused significant damage to hay fields, irrigation channels and roads.

Chris Keam of the Cariboo Regional District said it will be hard to fully realize the damage until the water has receded.

Forty-eight properties are either under evacuation alerts or orders, he said.

The city is also asking residents to ration water as crews are on their way to fix a ruptured sewer line in the River Valley.

The B.C. River Forecast Centre is maintaining flood warnings for the Chilako River and Cache Creek and for waterways in the Caribop and Chilcotin region.
