Did you know B.C.'s spring snowmelt is commonly referred to as freshet?
Head of the River Forecast Centre, David Campbell, explains when and where floods historically take place in British Columbia. Emergency Management BC and the River Forecast Centre work together to monitor and report on snowmelt, and EMBC supports local communities who prepare and plan for potential flooding situations.
