As flooding begins to recede slightly in the west, eastern Fraser Valley residents are still receiving the brunt of the Nooksack River’s floodwaters. Chilliwack councillor Jason Lum shared photos taken by a City of Chilliwack drone sent up to survey the condition in the eastern Sumas Prairie.

Yesterday, the City of Abbotsford shared its first aerial shots of the damage impacting farmland across southeastern Abbotsford.
