Flooding in Alberta

We have been watching with concern the recent major flooding in Alberta.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this disaster, and hope that life will return to a normal state soon.    

Because of the flooding in Alberta, we have had several inquiries from our guests concerning the conditions in our area.  The Nakusp area has had lots of rain in the last few weeks, but there have been no flooding concerns. 

Serenity Views was built on the hillside overlooking Upper Arrow Lake.  The level of the Arrow Lake is controlled by a dam at each end – the Revelstoke Dam on the north and the Keenleyside Dam near Castlegar on the south end of the Arrow Lake.  The level of the lake does fluctuate, but residents are aware of the changes and are prepared for these changes.  Any buildings must be built 100 feet above the high water line, so our lodgings are never in danger of flooding.

Deer on roadway When travelling to the Nakusp area, you should be aware of the road conditions along whatever route you choose to take.  The Drive BC website is great and covers the whole province.  It includes ferry information as well, which is essential to check when travelling to Nakusp.

As well as road and weather conditions, we urge our guests to be aware of wildlife.  Deer are quite often seen along the highways leading to Nakusp, so please be watchful and cautious.

We wish all our guests a safe journey to Serenity Views!
