Grand Forks Flooding – May 2018
In early May, many residents of the City of Grand Forks and neighbouring areas of the Regional District of Kootenay-Boundary were forced from their homes as flood waters rose from the Granby and Kettle Rivers. The immediate response was quick, with the City happily reporting that aside from a few near misses, there were no injuries as a result of what is being called a one-in-200-year flooding event.
Our team was asked by the city to capture the extent of the flooding from the perspective of a drone. We produced this video to help showcase the devastating effect the surging water had on the community.
