Ice not so nice right now

Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Regional Fire Chief Terry Swan is cautioning residents to stay clear of creeks, streams and rivers.

“Current cold conditions can cause ice jams, which may break loose and result in flooding and debris flows,” said Swan in a release issued to the public on Dec. 10.

There had been breaking ice jams in two of the region’s rivers over the past week, but fortunately no one was injured.
