RDN CHAIRPERSON DECLARES STATE OF LOCAL EMERGENCY FOR PARRY'S RV PARK IN ELECTORAL AREA G

Regional District of Nanaimo Chairperson Joe Stanhope has declared a State of Local Emergency for Parry's RV Park on the Englishman River. An evacuation is being carried out for a small number of residents of the RV Park, which is located adjacent to the Englishman River at 2099 Martindale Road in Electoral Area G. (See map below)

Some residents in the Englishman River, Nanaimo River and French Creek areas may experience flooding as a result of continuing heavy rains. Due to this extended period of rain, soil is saturated and many local watercourses contain debris and are running extremely quickly. Please exercise caution and keep children and pets well away from the water.
