good point, hope no-one was camping - that would be a silent killer, I think id stand there in shock and disbelief if i saw a wave like that on such a small lake, especially on a placid calm winters day

Chunk of B.C. mountain lets go, wipes out 3 campgrounds


Chantal Eustace, Vancouver Sun

Published: Friday, December 07, 2007
A mudslide in the Chehalis Lake near Chilliwack - which buried an entire campground early this week in a tsunami-like wave - has environmental groups worried the murky, tree-filled water will dangerously stress the lake's fish.
"The concerns are obviously for mud and silt around fish is that it is well-known to increase stress in fish," said Craig Orr, of Watershed Watch, listing out stress-related health problems, including fin rot. "This can lead to a lot of problems, depending on how long it lasts."
The slide likely occurred during Monday's rain storm, said B.C. Environment Minister Barry Penner, who surveyed the damage this morning. He said the slide occurred at the western end of the 10-kilometre lake but debris has been pushed to the eastern end, where it drains into the Chehalis River and then into the Harrison River.

Email to a friendPrinter friendlyFont: var addthis_pub = 'canada.com'; function textCounter(field,cntfield,maxlimit) { if (field.value.length > maxlimit) // if too long...trim it! field.value = field.value.substring(0, maxlimit); // otherwise, update 'characters left' counter else { var divLabel = document.getElementById("divLabel"); divLabel.innerHTML = maxlimit - field.value.length + " characters remaining"; } }

About two hectares of water is covered in debris, he said.
No one was injured.
"A big chunk of a side of a mountain let go," Penner said, describing the devastation. "The wall of water that was pushed up out of the lake was at least 30 to 40 feet high as it came ashore at the west end of the lake."
He said two campgrounds around the lake were damaged, while one was completely "obliterated." The water appeared to have rocked back and forth on either side of the lake, pulling trees and brush with it into the lake, he said.
"The water colour has certainly been affected and a tremendous amount of wood debris has collected at the east end of the lake," said Penner.
"Everything's kind of been moved around," said Penner, who said many large trees, including old Douglas firs and cedars, have been ripped out.
Chehalis Chief Willie Charlie also toured the damaged by helicopter today.
He said he was amazed by the damage along six kilometres of the lake, where the water appeared to have ricocheted back and forth.
Charlie said the damage is of concern to members of his 650-member reserve, situated between the Chehalis Lake and Harrison Lake, because of flooding.
"If [the debris] all decided to come down the Chehalis River at once, it could cause a damaging effect on the community," he said, adding that they completed a $3-million dyke this year to protect themselves from the river and this could be jeopardized by the debris.
They are also concerned for salmon, he said.oops read it on another board it is true but our site still be safe,,
