Mission issues warning after landslide

People urged to stay away

The City of Mission is warning about a landslide that originated at the forest fire site located at 19 kilometres on Florence Lake Forest Service Road.

No entry is permitted at this time while BC Hydro addresses the clearing, said the city in a tweet.

“The area will remain unstable for some time and access beyond this point may strand you,” said the city.
