B.C. offers emergency funding to thousands of families displaced by floods and mudslides

, as people in the southwestern part of the province prepare for more heavy rain this week.

Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun said at a separate briefing Tuesday afternoon repairs to four main areas of his agricultural community’s damaged dike system should stop more mass flooding this week. Large parts of the Sumas Prairie – where a massive lake was located before it was drained a century ago to create verdant farmland – remained off limits to farmers Tuesday, with the roofs of two-storey barns barely above the pooling water in the centre of the plain.

Merritt was ordered evacuated on Nov. 15 as the Coldwater River burst its banks and overwhelmed the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The plant is now accepting sewage but can’t treat it, so raw sewage is being released into the river while further repairs are made, Ms. Brown said. Details of the second phase of the return plan are expected by Thursday.

Canadian National issued a statement saying it plans to restore limited service over flood-affected track by Wednesday “barring any unforeseen issues.”
