Rivers in the Boundary expected to reach highest levels since 1948

There are big concerns in the Boundary when it comes to flooding.

The RDKB says Rivers there are expected to reach their highest levels since 1948.

There are now 33 properties under evacuation order, and 66 people have been ordered to leave their homes.

There are also 779 properties, or over 15 hundred people on evacuation alert.

 56 people have lost road access in Brown Creek but are safe and sheltering in place. 

A floodplain-wide evacuation alert is in place because water levels in creeks, rivers and lakes are expected to peak at record high levels the next 24 to 36 hours. 

As water levels peak, high water could cut off road access to many properties in the floodplain, even if individual homes may not be directly threatened by flooding.
