Evac Alert LIFTED for Johnsons Landing

The RDCK has removed the evacuation alert for Johnsons Landing. It has been determined that the small slide and debris flood were minor in nature.

The RDCK is asking the public to remain vigilant and to stay aware of the condition of Gar Creek.  Spring melt and coming rain could bring further debris down the creek channel.

The reception centre at the Argenta Community Hall has been closed as it did not appear to be needed. However, should residents require support, they are encouraged to contact Kaslo Social Services.

The RDCK thanks residents, emergency social services, and Ministry representatives for their assistance.

Should residents observe anything that concerns them, they are asked to contact the RDCK.
