KAMLOOPS — There are signs the flood threat in the Kamloops area may be subsiding.

The BC River Forecast Centre downgraded the status for the North Thompson and Thompson Rivers through Kamloops this morning, dropping them down to High Streamflow Advisory status.

The South Thompson remains at Flood Watch.

The centre says the levels of the South Thompson and Shuswap Rivers, as well as Mara Lake and Shuswap Lake, "have stabilized but remain high."

It adds while there are indications that runoff from snow melt may have reached peak levels, the situation remains sensitive, especially if rainfall leads to increased runoff.
