The Joe Rich Fire Department said water flowed down a hillside, filled a ditch and spilled water and mud onto the highway.

Only single-lane alternating traffic was getting through, with some intermittent closures, to allow crews to work on clearing the highway.

As of Sunday morning, DriveBC is not reporting any continuing problems on Highway 33.

The site of a Saturday evening mudslide on Highway 33 had been mostly cleared up by Sunday morning.
