Flood warning issued for Nazko/West Road River

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a flood warning for the Nazko River and West Road River.

Officials have also maintained a flood watch for the BC Central Interior, including the Bonaparte River, and tributaries around Williams lake, Quesnel Merritt, and Cache Creek.

A high streamflow advisory is still in effect for a number of other areas, including the Peace.

The river forecast centre says very high flows are being observed.  At the West Road River near Cinema, flows are estimated to be 430 m3/s (50-year flow) and rising.

Forecasters say modelling indicates the potential for flows to increase on Sunday and into Monday.

Warming temperatures are forecast for later next week, and may lead to another period of increased snow melt.
