The central Okanagan region is paying closer attention as snowpack levels continue to thaw.
The North Thompson basin is 8 per cent above average, and the South Thompson, 26 per cent.
B.C River Forecast Centre head, David Campbell says, these are the highest levels they’ve seen since the 1980s in the Okanagan.
“Snow pack above 150 per cent is extremely high, and we have that in areas in the Upper Fraser West, in the Nicola, the Okanagan, the Similkameen, the Boundary, and Skagit, and the Kootenays.”
Emergency Management B.C has shipped over a kilometer of gabions and around 10 kilometers of tiger dams in and around the Okanagan area.
22 evacuation alerts have been issued across B.C, which affect 585 homes.
