On May 10, 2018 a major flood, brought on by a quick snowmelt and intense rain, hit Grand Forks, BC, causing much of the town to be covered in water. The flood included the downtown and also areas that had not flooded before.
MDS volunteers will be staying at River Valley Community Church in Grand Forks. Sleeping accommodations, washroom facilities and dining facilities will be in the church with a shower trailer and a bunk trailer set up in the parking lot. Volunteers will be repairing homes that were gutted after the flood, with the possibility of a few new builds.
