Rising Water Update
Our flood watch status has beed reduced to Stage 1 River Watch Alert.
Waters are expected to peak on the long weekend. The peak is expected to be less than last weeks peak as such we are not expecting major flooding. Flooding should remain localized to low lying areas of Seabird. If these homes need to be evacuated they will he housed locally. If any large scale evacuation happens to take place our evacuation sites are Cheam and Merit.
Please stay away from the river and slough banks at this time, high water can make the surrounding banks unstable. These areas are hazardous. Keep a close eye on your children and animals.
Please keep an eye on the Seabird Website for updates, we also have a Flood Central in the lobby of the Seabird Band Office where you can pick up flyers and more information.
Just in case we are advising people to be prepared to be self-sufficient for 3 days; have enough food and supplies to take care of your family for 3 days until assistance can arrive to help you.
