Nov 15, 2021
Affected Communities: 
Electoral Area D

An Evacuation Alert has been issued by the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District.

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a Flood Watch for the Howe Sound and Sea to Sky regions
due to heavy precipitation from the ongoing atmospheric river event. BC Hydro has also issued a
spill notice for the Cheakamus Dam.

There is potential for the current high water levels observed in the Cheakamus River and its
tributaries to elevate further before this weather system passes.

Because of the potential danger to life and health, the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District has
issued an Evacuation Alert for the following areas:
