Access to Ruckle Not Permitted
Water-levels are rising in the Ruckle area of Grand Forks, and nobody is allowed there until given further notice. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary says a flood event similar to what was experienced last week is expected. The Emergency Operations Centre is still working at full capacity and the Red Cross Reception Centres are still taking registrations for those evacuated. River-levels can rise quickly and currents can be unpredictable so be cautious near flood-water.
As for garbage pickup, Alpine is reported to have relocated and curbside garbage is expected to resume for areas out of evacuation zones. The RDKB has also added an evacuation map on their website.
