The national forecaster says a second atmospheric river will bring heavy rains to the province for a second weekend in a row.

More than 100 millimeters of rain are expected for Haida Gwaii, with the storm then expected to move south into areas already hard hit on Monday and Tuesday.

Environment Canada says flooding and landslides could occur in northern British Columbia due to heavy rains.

Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said the government is closely monitoring areas facing flooding.

Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun said the valves at the Barrowtown pumping station were partially opened, allowing water levels in the Sumas Prairie area to drop.

Mounted police announced yesterday that the bodies of three men were found near Highway 99, bringing the death toll to four.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published on November 21, 2021.
