Advisory for Salmo River ended

The BC River Forecast Centre has lifted a high streamflow advisory for the Salmo River.

River levels peaked early Tuesday below two-year flow levels and have been receding since, the centre said in a bulletin.

It also rescinded a flood watch for the Kettle River, flood warning for the West Kettle, and streamflow advisories for the Granby and Moyie rivers.

Although the river levels are no longer a concern for the moment, the centre says river levels may rise again later in the week with warmer weather and increased snow melt.
