Line of storms approaches as B.C. works to recover from recent floods

BY The Canadian Press, Nov 25, 2021 5:34 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The B-C government says it's making headway on recovery since last week's floods with supply chains stabilizing, gas shortages starting to ease and some evacuees allowed to return to their homes.

Officials say the major supply route of Highway 1 through the Fraser Valley is on track to reopen later today, but are warning about a series of storms that have already begun sweeping over areas of the province that are struggling to recover from the floods.

Transportation Minister Rob Fleming says the government is prepared to close some roads as a precaution as modellers try to predict when and where flooding and mudslides might occur.

The province is urging residents to prepare for evacuations and watch for updates during storms and says it has also added a new contact centre line to provide emergency support and information about financial aid, road conditions and more.
