Two mudslides close Seymour Arm road in North Shuswap, no one injured

Slides hit Seymour Arm Main Forest Service Road halfway between St. Ives and Seymour Arm

Two mudslides have closed a road in the North Shuswap, but no one was injured.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District reports that Emergency Management BC has contacted the Shuswap Emergency Program, reporting two mudslides have closed the Seymour Arm Main Forest Service Road between St. Ives and Seymour Arm.

As of 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 23, emergency personnel were investigating.

Chase RCMP report that the two slides took place approximately halfway between the two remote areas. Police also confirm no one was hurt in the slides.

The CSRD states that Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue has been notified in case of the need for an emergency response. The area’s Neighbourhood Emergency Program, which is supported by the Shuswap Emergency Program, has also been alerted to help spread the word of the road closure to affected residents.

More information as it becomes available.
