Residents evacuated from Tubby's RV Park

 

Early Saturday morning residents of Tubby’s RV Park in Dawson Creek were evacuated because of heavy flooding.

Kim Lowder the Park Manager says the RCMP came through the park at about 2:30 a.m. telling residents to evacuate. The park was almost full with approximately 85 sites in use.  In some areas of the park, the water is almost 3 feet deep and it keeps rising.

According to Lowder, the water rose almost a foot over night and has since slowed.  Everyone was able to leave the park safely, but some RV's still remain and mostly belong to people who are out of town for the weekend.

At the moment the main buildings of the RV park are still intact and have not suffered any water damage.
