Sustained rain during the last two days has led to a number of road closures in the Valley due to flooding.
Canada Avenue, from the Sherman roundabout to Beverly Street, has been shut down, as well as sections of the nearby Philip and Mary streets largely due to Holmes Creek overflowing its banks.
As well, the intersection of Crofton and Chemainus roads, known as Pinson’s Corner, is also closed due to flooding, as well as Tzouhalem Road west of Briar.
Natasha Horsman, a spokeswoman for the Municipality of North Cowichan, said the situation will be closely monitored and updated through the day.
“It’s not a super heavy rain event that we’re experiencing, but it is sustained rainfall and is forecast to continue through the day,” she said.
