THE SLIDE CONTINUES TO MOVE AND THIS IS A VERY COMPLEX SITUATION; MINISTER FARNWORTH

By Adam Reaburn - October 10, 2018


Minister Farnworth shows local media more about the slide.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth visited Fort St. John and Old Fort Landslide Wednesday and continued to stress this is a very complex situation.

The Minister flew over the slide Wednesday afternoon and since Tuesday, the slide has moved another 20 metres into the Peace River and the cracks on either side of the slide are still widening.

Emergency Management B.C. now has a regional manager in the community working directly with the PRRD along with a communications person. Additional lidar mapping has been put into place to help geologists determine how the slide is moving.

there is a slide show at the link/source
