B.C.’s Interior continues to deal with severe flooding, but more help has arrived.

The first group of military personnel arrived Thursday in Grand Forks helping to sandbag and protect properties, and people, in the community.

Regional District of Kootenay Boundary's Emergency Operations Center took drone footage Friday along the Ruckle Addition area and by several riverbanks.

On Thursday, residents along South Ruckle were allowed home for roughly 12 hours to do what they could to protect and try and save their homes.

Environment Canada has lifted a special weather statement that forecast up to 40 millimetres of rain for the Boundary and Similkameen regions, but the affects of flooding still remain for much of the Southern Interior.

Flood warnings remain in effect for the Granby, Kettle and West Kettle rivers.
