Road Washouts

All the rain is causing some problems with roads.

A small portion of the Mabel Lake Forest Service Road east of Mabel Lake is closed to all traffic due to concerns about the stability of the roadbed. 
The closed section is about one kilometre north of the main entrance to Mabel Lake Provincial Park.

A main road in the Shuswap has been completely severed by a washout.   At the 6100 block - Eagle Bay Road was washed out yesterday afternoon when a creek surged and became too much for a culvert to handle.  Emergency crews are trying to divert the flow upstream and build a detour but in the meantime Eagle bay Road is closed to all traffic.

8 homes in the Kamloops area are under evacuation order after a landslide along Highway 5.
A local state of emergency has been declared, and the emergency operations centre has been activated.
