Flood Watch issued for Bulkley River near Smithers

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a Flood Watch for the Bulkley River.

Officials say the river near Smithers has been rising at approximately 20 cm a day and unseasonably warm temperatures are expected to continue through the week.

River levels in the Smithers area, including Ebenezer Flats, could reach flood stage by Wednesday or Thursday with significant additional rises over the weekend.

Local residents are reminded to stay clear of streams during spring runoff due to saturated, unstable riverbanks and swiftly flowing water.
