Twitter Reacts to The Incredible True Story of the British Columbia Mudslide and Its Devastating Human Toll

British Columbia is still reeling from extreme flooding.

Officials will release updated information on the situation on Thursday, the province’s Office of Emergency Management said.

The province says water levels are “very high” across the North Shore and Metro Vancouver suburbs, and the government says residents are “understandably frustrated” with the pace of aid.

Water levels in several areas continue to rise, making the evacuation order for Osoyoos on Vancouver Island more necessary.

Cleanup is underway across the province after heavy rains caused severe flooding and spawned a deadly landslide.

Forty-seven people have been left homeless since Sunday, and two others are unaccounted for, BC Premier John Horgan said in a news conference Wednesday.

“This is a very challenging and very serious situation,” he said.

“The last two days has been a few days of weather events that have inundated our province. Let me be very clear: The people of British Columbia deserve better than what we have seen over the last few days.”
