Intense rainstorms predicted for the Salmon Valley did not deliver as much rain as expected over the weekend, greatly reducing concerns about severe flooding of the Salmon River.
Lower-than-forecasted temperatures also contributed to reducing snow melt at higher elevations in the Shuswap, which helped moderate water flows in creeks and streams.
The Shuswap Emergency Program (SEP) is bringing in a specialized sandbagging machine to assist Salmon Valley residents with efforts to protect their properties.
The machine will be running at the Silver Creek Firehall with a crew starting in the morning on Saturday, May 30. Operation or the machine may continue on Sunday depending on the needs in the area.
