FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Peace River Regional District has issued a new evacuation alert and cancelled an old alert for the community of Old Fort.

According to the Regional District, this evacuation alert, known as evacuation alert #10, has been issued to maintain the pre-existing evacuation alert on 7711 Old Fort Road issued on June 20, 2020.

The District says the alert has been issued due to there being a surficial movement of material on the slope above this house outside of the original slide area of the landslides in 2018. This is a precautionary measure because it is unknown at this time how or if the older slide will have any affect on this newer movement.
