With extraordinary weather causing extreme flooding in towns and cities across B.C., the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) is advising its communities that their staff is closely monitoring river levels, and, at the same time, encouraging residents to be flood prepared.
“The rivers that we monitor are not showing concerning levels but we continue to monitor the situation,” says Mark Stephens, the RDKB’s manager of emergency programs.
The regional district urges residents to be aware of changing weather and water levels, as well as debris flows.
