Description

My three sons and their friends were up at Sicamous Falls outside of Sicamous at 2 Mile. My one son texted me and said to get there right away the falls are going crazy. I went to grab my umbrella before heading out and before we could get out of the lane way, he was coming down the street beeping his horn at us. He then proceeded to tell us that Waterways Houseboats where my husband is employed is currently being flooded with the waters coming up and over the creek. We headed out right away and just before we could get to the end of our street...it was already blocked off by RCMP. My son was first in line at the stop sign and he waited it out. The RCMP and Kim Hyde has stopped to help out in directing traffic back the opposite way. We are tenants of her daughter's, so she let us pass as she knows Scott works there. When we arrived we went down onto the property where he met up with one of his fellow employees that he works with. From there I proceeded to get pics and footage until we were told we had to leave
