The title just doesn’t look very dangerous does it? lol..maybe next time I’ll do all uppers!
Today at approx. 3:00 pm at a 10ft high tide, hubby and I decided to check out the Sumas River and how bad she was overflowing, wow! what a surprise. On the radio they said there were about 10 families that had to be evacuated from their homes. Parts of the Sumas River overflowed onto the Hwy #4 to Ucluelet & Tofino just over the main bridge going out of town (Port Alberni). They have a major detour you have to take. Their boat is at least close to the house ! A river over flowed into these peoples back yard and more! This is the back of a house that faces River Road, I took this picture down a road on the other side of the river This is a house that is on the river bank, I say they have more then just a basement full of water! I hope this little bird house survives Part of a wharf and ramp someones wharf oops! One Duck out for a swim The Whole Family’s out for a swim! This is the Towns main Marina,Looks like the Ducks have taken over. Some one decided to put a X-mas tree with decorations up on this viewing spot, there was even a tin on the picnic table, I didn’t have the heart to open it, I think it’s for the memory of a lady that the Bench was Dedicated to. Buggz got in this photo with the tin of ????? Looking up the river to the marina where the ramp was closed.
You’ll also see pictures of swamped wharfs and floating shelters that have been overcome by the raging water, some people who live across the road from the river have rights to land and wharfs on the other side of the main “River Road” edge of the river, I say they have lots of work ahead of them!
