Our local area is expecting a period of warming with additional rain and 60-80 kilometre an hour southern winds. Staff are monitoring problem trees, but Community Members should watch for tree branches breaking from the weight of ice and high winds. Be prepared for possible power outages if trees fall on power lines.
Staff have been in contact with Elders to ensure they are safe and have the essentials that they need.
We are doing what we can to ensure that the community is safe, however we have identified some areas that Community Members should avoid if possible.
Peters Rd. to Wahleach Rd.
This is a high hazard area. Use extreme caution. Choose another route if possible.
This road is still closed, no one should be driving along Pipehom Rd. Snow, ice and heavy winds have caused extreme snow drifts.
The road between Quo and Qualq is blocked off and closed due to substantial tree debris and hanging tree branches. Local traffic can still access homes but all others are advised to avoid this area.
Please also use extreme caution in the back side of Strawberry Island.
Finally, roads are icy throughout the community. Please be cautious and stay safe.
