A tour of the Lytton area is being arranged for Friday, July 9 for evacuated residents.
While the TNRD says the area is still not safe for unescorted entry, work has been done to clear a way to permit taking residents through the area by bus. The tour is being coordinated in conjunction with Lytton First Nation to ensure that impacted residents have an opportunity to view the area.
Given that residents have evacuated into various locations in the province, arrangements are being made for various pick-up points. At this time, pick-up locations being considered are Whistler, Chilliwack, Merritt and Kamloops.
Following the tour for residents, a bus tour will also be provided for media.
To register for the bus tour, residents must call the TNRD Emergency Operations Centre at 1-866-377-7188 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, residents are asked to limit participation to two members of each household.
