BC to Provide Up-to-Date Flood Information as South Coast Prepares for More Heavy Rains | The Canadian News

More than three weeks after the first storm to hit parts of British Columbia, people in the Fraser Valley are just beginning to clean up.

Cultus Lake Provincial Park is still recovering after atmospheric rivers downed trees and buried picnic tables.

Clean-up efforts are underway with teams working to restore roads and campgrounds before the summer season.

The British Columbia government is scheduled to provide an update on the provincial situation at 11:30 a.m. PST Thursday. That will be streamed live upstairs on BC1 and on Global BC’s Facebook page.
