Flooding is occurring on both the Englishman and Nanaimo Rivers and water levels are expected to continue to rise into the afternoon.
Residents in low-lying areas are encouraged to take precautions and if flooding occurs, move to higher ground. Stay away from river and stream banks as fast-moving water conditions are very dangerous. Monitor the River Forecast Centre and visit rdn.bc.ca/flooding for proactive steps.
