High Water

Environment Canada's forecast rain for the Central Coast and Bella Coola Valley was wrong.  We received about double the amount they were forecasting, around 50 mm between noon Sunday and early Monday morning.  It was a good rain and brought the Bella Coola River up to levels not seen since the Great Flood of September 2010.  There was lots of logs and trees moving in the river today, but for the most part the river contained within its banks.  Grizzly

  1. I was in Ketchikan, Alaska on Friday and Saturday and they got 140mm of rain. Sounds like you were on the southern end of the same strom. Consider yourself lucky you didn't get what they got.
