More wet weather on the way: be prepared
Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Metro Vancouver.
Up to 120 mm of heavy rain is forecast for Tuesday, November 30 through Wednesday, December 1.
- Help prevent flooding by clearing leaves and debris from catch basins and drainage areas.
- Please slow down and drive carefully. Heavy downpours can cause water pooling on roads.
- Stay clear of rivers due to quickly flowing water and potentially unstable riverbanks.
- Have an emergency plan and kit to help you and your family be prepared for a power outage.
