The Thompson Nicola Regional District has declared a local state of emergency in Area 'N' Beautiful Nicola Valley- South.

Mike Garrett from the TNRD Emergency Operattions CEntre says the declaration will allow emergency work to be performed within and around waterways, including erosion and flood protection works.

He says work will concentrate on the Nicola River, in order to protect four properties on the Nooaitch Indian Band reserve, and along Petit Creek Rd.

"We just put this out so we can do this work, and protect these properties. It all depends on what the (Nicola) river does."

A Local State of Emergency was also declared for Area 'M' Beautiful Nicola Valley - North back on May 9th.

Residents in both areas continue to be reminded that if they feel they are in imminent danger, they should evacuate immediately.
