Reason of potential flooding
The current snow pack has been measured at significantly more than the annual average. Depending on the melt pattern, this may result in record high river levels. The Ministry of Environment is able to measure the snow pack and look at snowpack melting to compare it to previous flooding events, but exact forecasting of a flood is not possible at this time.
