Things are getting a little scary for people who live near Okanagan Lake in BC.
The water level has risen by 9cm in the past 24 hours–just a little more than 4-feet below the big flood of 2017.
There was some heavy rain last night—and there’s a little more in the forecast for the next couple of days.

-In the meantime–officials are warning people in the swamped areas of New Brunswick to wear protective clothing—and to NOT drink any water from private wells that havent been tested.
Health experts say the floodwaters could be full of harmful bacteria–like salmonella or E-coli.
The good news–is that the Saint John River–is supposed to keep dropping.
