Rainfall and flood warnings issued for Terrace, Kitimat

Environment Canda expects upto 100mm, in addition to yesterday’s 50mm

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Terrace and Kitimat with the potential for flooding in low-lying areas. The upgrade to a flood warning is also in effect from the River Forecast centre for Hirsch Creek and the Kitimat, Little Wedeene and Kemano rivers. Many other waterways are under the flood-warning in areas throughout the Terrace and Kitimat area.

An intense frontal system will lie across the North Coast today bringing copious amounts of rainfall.

The area is expected to receive up to about 100 mm in the Kitimat area, on top of the 50 mm yesterday.

The rain will end near midnight as the front moves southward out of the area.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Watch for possible washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.

Heavy rain is pounding the entire North Coast and Inland regions ahead of a developing low pressure system approaching from the Pacific. Environment Canada issues rainfall warnings only when significant rainfall is expected.
