The RDKB regional emergency operations centre (EOC) has placed six properties in Manly Meadows in Electoral Area D/Rural Grand Forks on Evacuation Order.
“The Evacuation Order is being issued due to the river cutting off access to the six properties,” said Mark Stephens, RDKB EOC Director.
With rising temperatures in the forecast, the EOC is keeping a close eye on conditions in the region.
In addition to the Manly Meadows Order, the RDKB regional emergency operations centre has 621 addresses on Evacuation Alert and 1 address on Evacuation Order within the RDKB and the Villages of Fruitvale and Midway.
