Posted: Sat Nov 27, 2021, 15:15 Type: Evacuation Alert Status: Current

An evacuation alert has been issued by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.

Based on the current weather outlook and modelling from the River Forecast Centre, heavy rainfall
in the Southern Interior poses a potential threat to people and property in the Coldwater and Lower
Nicola watersheds.

has issued an evacuation alert, as identified on the attached maps for the following areas:
• Electoral Area “I” (Blue Sky Country);
• Electoral Area “M” (Beautiful Nicola Valley – North); and
• Electoral Area “N” (Beautiful Nicola Valley – South)

This evacuation alert has been issued so that residents in low-laying areas adjacent to vulnerable
rivers, streams, and creeks can prepare to evacuate their premises or property should it be
necessary.

Residents will be given as much advance notice as possible prior to an evacuation order being
issued, however you may receive limited notice due to quickly-changing conditions.
