More residents in the Cariboo region can breath a little easier after officials lifted an evacuation alert.

The Cariboo Regional District, Xatśūll-Cmetēm First Nations, Williams Lake Indian Band and Esdilagh First Nation have lifted evacuation alerts for many communities on the east side of the Fraser River.

These communities are now open for regular business, vulnerable populations can return to the community and economic activity can fully resume now that the alerts have been lifted.
Evacuation alerts are lifted for the following areas:

Some CRD areas east of the Fraser River;

  • WLIB areas including: Williams Lake 1 (Sugar Cane), Carpenter Mountain 15, Tillion 4, Chimney Creek 5, San Jose 6, Asahal Lake 2 and Five Mile 3;
