The Canadian Armed Forces are working to reinforce flood defences in Merritt.
Mayor Brown stated “The military are an incredible force. We’ve had help from neighbouring local governments since this began, and with the incoming weather system it’s now appropriate to bring in the army to help shore up our flood defences. Their work will help to ensure that we are as well-prepared as we can possibly be when the next pulse of streamflow hits us, which is currently expected in the evening of Sunday November 28th.”
