Chilliwack Evacuations

Does anybody know if there were any strata units that were evacuated in Chilliwack as a result of the flooding and mud slides?

The reason I ask is that I have not been able to reach my mother this past week and am still unable to do so as of today. I have tried her phone, and email, but do not know her address or where she lives other than it's a strata unit in Chilliwack.

We had not spoken in many years until last spring when we started talking again... hence the reason I do not know her address.

Anyways, I am getting very worried as she made no mention of going away, and has not contacted me to let me know she is safe, or whatever, and I cannot find any information to rule out a strata as being evacuated or damaged. I have not heard any reports of people being trapped or whatever, so I am sitting here in the dark with my guts churning.

My next move is to call the emergency rooms and police to see if anyone has been brought in or reported as found. She is 65 and a bit of a hermit to begin with, so she does not associate with a lot of people and if she is injured and unable to get to the phone, then time is precious.

I spent hours over the weekend trying to track down anybody that may know where she is but have had no luck.

On the off chance that somebody knows of her - she is a dog breeder / show handler and does grooming on the weekends - her name is Sheila.

We had loose plans to get together this past Sunday, and it is unlike her to miss out and not say anything. She had my contact info on her computer, so if she had to be evacuated she may very well be just fine, but not sure how to contact me.

Any information or suggestions would be very much appreciated. She drives an '02 or '03 Honda car, not sure of the model or colour.

Okay, so I called the RCMP and they tracked her address down and went there. They called me to say that her car was in the driveway and to sit tight while they investigated. The worst feeling ever.

Turns out she has been in the hospital since last Wednesday night. Apparently she called an ambulance as she was having trouble breathing and was alone and scared. She could not get a hold of me from the hospital as I am unlisted and she doesn't have my number memorized.

So I am profoundly relieved that my mother is alive and not laying injured in her home and unable to get help.

Curlee .... thank you so much for your PM. You rock!

To the rest of you ....

Life is too precious to be wasted on bullshit. Keep your families close and don;t let any crap get in the way of that. Even though I have not been close with mine, this little ordeal has reminded me that once we are gone, we are gone and it's too late to make amends.

I will be mending my fences

Glad your feeling better. Was very cool of the feds to do that, not that I often give props to the RCMP. Hope your mom feels better and you guys get a chance to finish mending fences.

That's awesome man... i always like to read of the good things on here instead of people getting pissed at each other over stupid posts. sounds like you have a great opportunity and fresh perspective to make up for lost time. and glad to hear she wasn't any worse off!

I just got back from the hospital. It was a relief She is none the worse for wear and should be out in a few days.

I guess the cop went to the hospital and tracked her down. She handed her the phone and said "your son is looking for you, you better call him". The cop had my number in her cell, so she was able to hook us up.

It was a pretty crazy couple of days, but it ended very well. I'll be spending some time helping her out when she gets home as she is a little drained from her ordeal, and well, just because.

Sometimes you get a police officer who is actually a good guy/woman and will go that extra mile for you, this is one of those examples.

Lorne, good news nonetheless she was found and is doing ok. And yes, keep your family close, I've recently gotten back in the good books with mine back home in Winnipeg. actually spent x-mas there and it was to say the least, the best one in a long long long time.

I imagine theres a big difference between the cops looking up her info and going themselves and giving it to you.

Heck, id to the same. i think anyone who was placed in that position would do the same, cop or not, its human nature.

Its unfortunate that most people's interaction with Police is negative as they've just given you a ticket, or VI or license suspension, but they'll be the first ones running in when you call for help.

Maybe next time you see them at Timmies getting a coffee tell em thank you for helping keep us safe instead of asking "so what donut you gettin today?"
You'll prolly get a better response.
