Evacuation alert rescinded

An alert for Truswell Road has been rescinded in Kelowna

An evacuation alert has been rescinded in the Central Okanagan.

The alert for 3896 Truswell Road, that was impacted by Okanagan Lake flooding, has been repealed.

One evacuation alert remains in effect in the Central Okanagan at this time. See the Central Okanagan Emergency Operations map for more information.

To stay informed about flooding and the recovery efforts, visit the operation’s website, sign up for e-updates or call the information line at 250-470-0674.

Full flood demobilization efforts continue as 125-member crews conduct sandbag removals along private property in areas in Kelowna, West Kelowna and Lake Country no longer under threat of flooding and will be expanding into Peachland and Oyama next week, according to an emergency operations release.

To make sure sandbags are recorded for pick up, Emergency Management BC has provided a quick and easy sandbag recovery application, available online.
