Batten down the hatches B.C., another round of intense inclement weather is forecast to impact the province this week.

The AccuWeather Global Weather Center says a train of storms is expected to race through the hard-hit areas of the province and the Pacific Northwest. It notes that thousands of residents have been displaced, forced to ration gas, and left stranded due to destroyed roadways after a powerful atmospheric river created a once-in-500-year flood event that devastated parts of B.C. and Washington state last week. 

At least five total fatalities were reported across Canada and the United States as rescuers search through the rubble that was caused by more than 254 millimetres (10 inches) of rain places.

AccuWeather forecasters are tracking multiple rounds of wet weather that could impact some of the same areas as last week.

The first storm is expected to arrive later today.
