Floods receding

The B.C. government says progress is being made in restoring access to the central coast town of Bella Coola after torrential rains washed out the only road link to the community and flooded the airport.

The B.C. government says progress is being made in restoring access to the central coast town of Bella Coola after torrential rains washed out the only road link to the community and flooded the airport.

Transportation Minister Shirley Bond says work is under way to clear the slides that have blocked Highway 20 and the route is now passable east of Anahim Lake.

Evacuation orders were rescinded Tuesday, but some people still haven’t been able to return home because of damage caused by the flooding.

It could take weeks for the water to recede, according to government officials.
