Much of the Salmon Valley and other Shuswap areas are underwater this week.

Heavy rains on Wednesday, May 9 meant many properties along Salmon River Road were flooded between midnight and 2 o’clock Thursday morning.

While some property owners are still sandbagging and pumping, others have had to give up the fight and will wait for the water to recede. This is being classed as a 100-year flood. It’s not known yet what the effects of warmer temperatures forecast for this weekend will have on the larger-than-normal snowpack.
