British Columbia Evacuation order issued in Zeballos, B.C., due to landslide danger

An evacuation order is in effect for part of Zeballos, B.C., due to the threat of landslides – coming just weeks after a similar order prompted by wildfires.

In a release, the village says it has accepted a government recommendation to evacuate several properties on the eastern edge of the village.

The evacuation order says there is an immediate danger due to potential debris falls or slides.
