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.

Thousands of residents have been affected by the flooding. One woman is confirmed to have died and four others remain missing.
The financial assistance is for those affected by the flooding and landslides from Nov. 14 to 16, 2021.
