Mayor Lyn Hall says the city remains open to evacuees today.
Already the College of New Caledonia, the University of Northern B.C. and Prince George Senior Secondary School are providing lodging for nearly 250 evacuees. Nearly 1,500 evacuees have found alternate accommodation with friends or family in the area. More than 200 are set up in RV’s while another 300 are in local hotels and motels. In total nearly 3,300 evacuees have registered at CNC.
All eyes are on Williams Lake today. It could be the next community issued an evacuation order. It was put on an Evacuation Alert Monday evening. Environment Canada says an overnight rain system missed that city. It’s predicting a chance of thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon with little or no rain.
