Sunday, July 23, 2017 @ 8:55 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Although the evacuation order for some areas of the South  Cariboo has  been lifted,  the number of evacuees in Prince  has hit a new  high.

As of  late  yesterday,   there were 9500 evacuees in Prince George, the number  climbing because of the birth rate.

Eight babies have been  born to  women  who have been displaced to Prince George  because of the evacuation order.

In all,  there are nearly 1800 children  among the  total number of evacuees in  P.G.



It would be interesting to know if any of the any evacuees will decide to relocate to Prince George now that they have seen first hand how amazing the people here are.

It would also be interesting to know how many of the 9500 evacuees have never been to PG before.
