The Cariboo Regional District has issued an expanded evacuation order for areas in the West Chilcotin which reflects the addition of Satah Mountain and the P-Road Area.
“This order replaces the order issued on July 28, 2017 for the area North of Highway 20 to South of Tzenzaicut Lake,” said the CRD.
Due to immediate danger, members of the RCMP or other groups will be expediting this action. The evacuation route is along Highway 20 to Williams Lake.
