Monday, May 15, 2017 @ 11:34 AM

Prince George, B.C.-  There is some good news on the  swollen rivers  in Northern B.C.

The River Forecast Centres has ended the high stream flow advisory for the Bulkley River,  including the small streams and tributaries around Houston, Telkwa, Smithers and surrounding areas.

The  waterways in that region reached their peak over the weekend.  The weather is improving,  river levels are receding and are expected to continue to improve through this week.

In the Peace Region,  some mixed  news.

As of this morning,  the  Beatton River remains on a flood  warning although the rate of  rising water levels  is slowing.

The Moberly   and Peace Rivers are on a  flood watch,  and the Halfway River has been downgraded to a high stream-flow advisory.
