The B.C. government has provided a flooding map to show what areas of the province have been affected by the atmospheric river in mid-November.

A total of 17 regional districts were affected by floods, mudslides and landslides when about a month’s worth of rain fell on that part of the province in about two days, Emergency Management BC said.

That includes southern Vancouver Island, the South Coast, parts of the Interior and the Kootenay Region.

Thousands of residents have been affected by the flooding. One woman is confirmed to have died and four others remain missing.
