DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Heavy Rain has washed out over 15 roads in the South Peace and caused problems on the South Taylor Hill and major Highways throughout the Peace.

Environment Canada says the region has received 30 to 80 mm of rain, with the highest amounts closer to the Rocky Mountains. Fort St. John is predicted to receive another 15 to 20 mm on Monday.

The South Taylor Hill remains single-lane alternating traffic due to a small sinkhole developed over the day on Sunday. Watch for traffic control personnel on-site directing traffic.
