Extreme flows

Today is break in a series of extreme rain storms. We had just learned that the count for the returning chinooks to the Campbell River was pretty darn good, but the high and fast flows could be trouble for those spawning salmon, and damaging to the fragile eggs of other species if the gravel is disturbed or worse, washed away. The coast changed from near drought conditions, to excessive rain when the season changed.
 This photo is Elk Falls , which is most impressive to see from the suspension bridge. In Campbell River town , residents in the low areas have been sandbagging in anticipation of flooding.
