The B.C. government is urging residents to be prepared for the storms and to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.
The province is still recovering from devastating flooding and mudslides in mid-November and now the first of three atmospheric rivers has struck the province.
The previous floods and mudslides killed five people and destroyed parts of major highways, rail lines and farmland.
Deputy Premier Mike Farnworth, Transportation Minister Rob Fleming, Agricultural Minister Lana Popham and Minister of Municipal Affairs, Selina Robinson, will speak live at 12:15 p.m. PT.
