The evacuation alert issued May 12 to properties on Landry Road and the Quesnel-Hixon Road has been removed, with the exception of two properties on the Quesnel-Hixon Road which remain on evacuation alert.

The Cariboo Regional District’s Emergency Operations Centre says an evacuation order issued to three properties on the Cottonwood River remains in effect.

Residents are reminded to use extreme caution at this time of year near, on or around waterways as a result of elevated water levels and rapid currents. Rivers, streams and creeks throughout the region are swollen and should be considered hazardous as warm temperatures this weekend could see increased flows.
