Snowpack warns of regional flood risk

“It’s now two-thirds through the season and the amount of snow accumulation has climbed. The regional snowpack is now 139 per cent of normal, close to the winter of 2006-2007’s 153 per cent of normal, which contributed to the late spring 2007 flooding along the Skeena River.”

“The precipitation measuring station at the Northwest Regional Airport has broken a 31 year snow-pack record – 25 per cent more accumulated precipitation than the winter of 2006-2007.”
