British Columbia: A state of local emergency remains in effect in the village of Pemberton, where flooding has prompted evacuation orders for six rural properties and evacuation alerts for dozens more — including a mobile home park.
The Pemberton Animal Wellbeing Society shared a message on social media saying two staff members with Blackcomb Helicopters had broken into the shelter Tuesday to rescue five puppies and their mother from rising floodwaters.
A bulletin from B-C’s River Forecast Centre says a gauge along the Lillooet River recorded flows reaching levels seen once every five to 10 years.
A flood warning also covers the Squamish River, and the forecast center says the risk is expected to persist into Thursday as a final atmospheric river brings further rain and snowmelt to the region.
