Safety concerns are forcing a number of residents and visitors out of a popular campsite in Coldstream, British Columbia.
The Lake Country Calendar reported that Dutch’s Campground has been forced to issue notice to everyone at the site to pack up and leave due to a risk of several large trees falling.
“Monday night two huge trees fell,” said office manager Dianne. “Our trees are now a big concern.”
While the trees that fell earlier this week fell on a vacant spot, there is concern about what other trees could.
“Safety is our No. 1 issue here now,” she said. “Someone could get hurt.”
The rising creek that runs through the campground has eroded the banks and some of the roots of the trees, creating a potentially dangerous situation.
