There have been some heart wrenching photos coming from the flooding of the Thompson Canyon and a lot of people have been asking about a beloved store that is pretty much on the banks of said river; The Dam Store.
The flooding we’re experiencing right now is some of the worst in our area’s history. At least 17 miles of highway 34 in the Thompson Canyon will have to be rebuilt after being washed-out or damaged. With the snowy season looming on the horizon, just how long is it going to take before that route is back to normal?
The flooding is no where near contained and rain continues to fall with expectations of heavy rainfall later today, tonight and possibly tomorrow. The flooding Thompson River has already washed out parts of Highway 34 and waters are likely to rush to town.
