Kamloops activates emergency operations centre


The City of Kamloops has activated its emergency operations centre with rain in the forecast at the headwaters of the north and south Thompson rivers.

A statement on the city’s website says river forecasts are calling for a spike in river levels this week, and activating the emergency centre is a precautionary measure that will help the city respond quickly if the situation worsens.

The north and south Thompson rivers are subject to a flood watch from the River Forecast Centre, along with the Quesnel River and the Liard River in the north.

Lower-level high streamflow advisories are in place for the Swift River and other waterways in the northwest corner of the province, as well as the Peace River region, the Nicola River and rivers in the Kootenays. (The Canadian Press)
