Off-grid YouTubers document destruction and repair of Coquihalla Highway (VIDEOS)

“If you like big machines this is for you!”

The YouTube channel SteBros has been sharing incredible footage of the damage done by recent flooding to highways and bridges in BC’s interior.

Ever since flooding from a recent rainstorm took out highways in B.C.’s interior, one family has been in the middle of the action.

The SteBros YouTube channel was created by a B.C. family to share the development of an off-grid mountain retreat off the Coquihalla Highway. When the rivers rose and ate away at bridge foundations the channel provided regular updates on the unfolding situation. 

When the flooding damage was at its height on Nov. 15, SteBros uploaded a video showing the destruction. The channel’s cameras captured cars being swept away in the newly reshaped Coquihalla River, trees being torn from their foundations and some of the first video footage of the damage dealt to major roadways. 

Over the past week construction crews have been working steadily to repair highways in the region and SteBros cameras have been there to capture that too. The channel’s latest video is a cacophony of diesel engines, vehicle motion alarms and helicopters ferrying in supplies.
