Armstrong Lifts Alert
Overnight creek levels have dropped to the point that the advanced evacuation alert for property owners and citizens that live along Meighan Creek in the Willowdale Rd, Patterson Ave and lower Becker Street areas has been lifted as of 10am Tuesday May 15th.
The State of Local Emergency remains in place at this time as day time temperatures are forecasted to be 8-10 degrees above the seasonal normal; we could still see rapid rises in creek flows as the snow melts at higher elevations.
Members of the public, observing or working near creeks are reminded that creek levels may rise quickly and should exercise caution at all times around the fast moving water and creek banks. Sand and bags are currently available for self-filling, at no cost, at the Public Works Yard located at 2950 Patterson Avenue and at the corner of Bridge Street and Okanagan Blvd.
