Please ensure children are dressed in winter clothing, including jackets, hats and gloves.
Lax Kw’alaams maintenance recommends residents to leave their taps dripping at a slow pace (5-6 drips per minute) to prevent pipes from freezing. Do not leave water running steadily, as this may impact water reservoir levels overall. Please also be mindful not to plug in too many heaters on the same circuit – to prevent electrical fires.
For any emergency plumbing or maintenance issues in Lax Kw’alaams, please contact the maintenance department at 250-625-3156 or email [email protected]
From Environment Canada:
Strong outflow winds and cold wind chill is expected until at least the end of the week on the North Coast. Risk of frostbite and hypothermia.
Arctic air, combined with strong outflow winds, will generate wind chill values of -20 to -30 across the coastal and inland sections of the north and central coast. Wind chill values may moderate this weekend but uncertainty remains on the timing of the warm-up.
Frostbite and hypothermia can occur within minutes if adequate precautions are not taken when outdoors.
Ensure that shelter is provided for pets and outdoor animals. Be prepared for unusually cold temperatures and strong winds.by
