Severe flood warnings and evacuation alerts were in place in Merritt, in south-central British Columbia, on Monday, November 15, as an atmospheric river brought heavy rain to the southern part of the province.
Video posted to Twitter on Monday by Jared Thomas, located in Merritt, shows gushing floodwaters covering all but one step of his front porch. “Video from the doorbell cam – we have one more step before the house is in trouble,” Thomas said in the post.
The City of Merritt advised residents with friends and family outside of the community to make plans with them and evacuate immediately. Credit: Jared Thomas via Storyful
