KAMLOOPS — The flood situation appears to have slowed down throughout the city.

Tammy Robertson, EOC Information Officer with the City of Kamloops, says crews spent most of Sunday monitoring creek levels throughout the city, with no reports of any significant flooding.

Still, with warm temperatures forecast for this week, the city remains on high alert.

"It's all a matter of what's might be happening in the mountains in term of the melt," said Robertson. "We'll continue to watch what the flow looks like and be ready to act if needed."

Robertson says Campbell Creek water levels still remain high with Barnhartvale Road closed between Shumway Road and Campbell Creek Road as a precaution.

Old Highway 5 also remains closed between Tatlow Road and Creek Road after a washout in Heffley Creek Saturday.
