Premier Christy Clark has issued the following statement:
"British Columbians have been following the footage of the devastating impacts of the flooding here at home and in Alberta.
"While the Mission Creek flow rate has dropped, the Southeast is still facing evacuation alerts. Emergency officials and Minister Bill Bennett are monitoring the situation in Elkford, Hosmer and Sparwood closely to ensure residents have the resources they need.
"Like all Canadians, I have been struck by the images and video from southern Alberta. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.
"I urge all British Columbians who live in areas vulnerable to flooding to be prepared and have a plan."
