  • Picture of flooding in Sumas WashingtonFLOODING IN MD19 COMMUNITIES — Flooding from the “atmospheric river” of storms rolling through the Pacific Northwest continues to terrorize the communities along the Fraser, Nooksak and Skagit Rivers and other communities in southwest British Columbia and northwest Washington. An additional 120 millimeters of rain (that's about 5 inches for U.S. readers) is predicted for most of Metro Vancouver, B.C. east through Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Hope, and as much as 150 millimeters (6 inches) north from Squamish to Whistler, just on December 1. In the past 30 days, rainfall totals have exceeded 30 inches (that would be 762 millimeters) in the high terrain of western Washington that is draining into communities like Sumas, Lynden, Ferndale, Concrete and Sedro Wooley. See Inernational Director Allan Hunt's November 18, 2021 letters, in either English or Français, for further backgrond. The effects of the flooding since mid–November will not be going away soon! Let's get the service–juices flowing Lions and pitch in to help our communities and remind our neighbors that We Serve like no one else can.
