The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary issued an Evacuation Alert for Manly Meadows Area.

The RDKB said the alert is being issued due to the potential for a second spike in flooding from the Kettle River in the Manly Meadows Area.

“Predictions are that the water level could exceed those experienced on Saturday, May 6,” the media release said.

“Your property is on alert due to concerns associated with responders and resident’s safety considering the potential loss of road access to your property if water levels rise.”

The RDCK said residents do not need to leave your property at this time, but must be prepared to do so.

Should the alert be upgraded to an evacuation order residents should:

  • Gathering essential items remember the 5 Ps (People, Pets, Prescriptions, Papers and Photos).
  • Designating a meeting place for family members outside of the evacuation area.
  • Arranging accommodation for your family if necessary.
  • Preparing to move any disabled persons and /or children.
  • Moving personal belongings to a higher location within your home.
  • Moving pets and livestock to a safe area outside the evacuation alert area.
  • Monitor news sources for information on evacuation orders

The RDCK said in case of an evacuation order, a Reception Centre is being set up at the Jack Goddard Memorial Arena, 2020 Central Avenue, Grand Forks, BC.
