UPDATED STRUCTURE LOSS SUMMARY FOR NORTH SHUSWAP AREA
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has updated the structure loss summary. As of September 4 at 2 PM there are approximately:
- 176 total structure losses, up from the previous total of 131
- 50 partially damaged structures, up from the previous total of 37
These are approximate numbers as a full damage assessment could not be completed by Canada Task Force 1 due to active wildfire and other hazards. CSRD Building Department Staff will continue to conduct damage assessments in areas not accessible to Canada Task Force 1. Be advised that the numbers may change further.
CSRD has created an online search tool for the North Shuswap area to search addresses and view property status at https://www.csrd.bc.ca/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1683.
The CRSD is committed to supporting our community members during this difficult time. Individuals are being contacted with information pertaining to losses and damages to help facilitate and support a return to the area. If residents suspect property loss or damage and have not been contacted by CSRD, they are asked to email [email protected] and include their name, address and driver’s license number.
