PRRD warning residents to monitor rainfall situation and flood risk

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Peace River Regional District is reminding residents to be prepared incase of flooding.

Chair of the Board, Brad Sperling says the Peace River Regional District has yet to receive any reports of flooding in the region but is still warning residents to be ready.

“Be careful and safe. Keep in touch with media outlets for updates. If residents have any concerns, they can go to the Peace River Regional District website. The ground is so saturated this time of year and even this rain could cause us some issues.”
