Here is Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb's message to the residents' of Williams Lake yesterday evening:

Monday night. Once again quiet. Very little wind today. Must emphasize my water report is only what I can see here in the valley. I am not a weatherman but probably are as accurate.
Beautiful day today. You would think the world was back to normal but those fires are still lingering. Waiting to pounce when least expect it. For those who are home remember that and be ready.
The resiliency center ( stupid name ) is quite busy
Red Cross Volunteers burning out and need help. Appointments being made up to the Aug 8th.
Donation center having trouble getting trucks to move big trailers around so if you have such please contact them. Would not be a big job or very often but trailers are dropped off and the drivers need to get home. Check with them if you could help.
Have not been able to get the updates from the fire center that was discussed as yet but working on that. You can go on the official site but may not be able to tell what the movement is. I have trouble with Web sites and the ability to get what I want so not going try to interpret what I think they are saying.
So one more safe day and conflicting weather reports.
Sleep tight.

Finally - friendly reminder to continue to rely ONLY on official sources for Evacuation Alerts or Orders from your local government website or Facebook page or through the local media - Tribune (click here) or Vista Radio (click here)
