News Article

The imminent threat from the flooding due to the atmospheric event in November and the ice jams in December has passed. All evacuation orders and alerts issued between November and December 2021 have been rescinded.

View the Evacuation Order and Alert RESCIND notice.

Supports are available through Red Cross for those unable to return home. Red Cross Case Management is also available to assist people on their route to recovery. A list of other additional supports is provided below.

Now is the time to prepare your property and home for spring freshet. Freshet occurs when winter snow packs melt rapidly, overwhelming stream channels and creating floods. Spring freshet can also destabilize soil and rock, causing mudslides, landslides and rock slides. If you have experienced flooding in the past, consider creating a flooding plan.
