Shoreline flooding on Nicola Lake

Residents and resort owners along Nicola Lake, near Merritt, are being warned to expect shoreline flooding in the coming days. The ministry in charge of the dam will be taking measures Friday to regulate the water level. It's the latest effort as numerous communities deal with water advisories. Water levels in the Nicola Lake area are expected to remain high for at least two weeks due to the recent rain. Merritt has been hit particularly hard this week. Dave Campbell, with the B.C. River Forecast Centre, says  advisories remain in effect throughout parts of the central interior, the Thompson Region, Boundary, and Okanagan. Although he says most communities are likely through the worst of it. He also says in terms of flooding, its not anything out of the ordinary. Many of the streamflow advisories are expected to be lifted by the end of Friday.

Washington state bridge collapse causes traffic headaches

Canadians heading to Seattle this weekend could face some major traffic headaches after a bridge collapse Thursday night. Police in Washington State don't know what caused the collapse of the bridge on Interstate 5 north of Mount Vernon. But there are reports an oversized vehicle clipped a portion of the bridge. Two cars were dumped about 16 metres into the Skagit River at around 7 pm. Three people were injured, but all are expected to be okay.    The bridge is located about halfway between the Canadian border and Seattle. Drivers are advised to take an alternate route as the bridge collapse has effectively shut down the highway in that area.
