Good evening Kelowna: Dec. 13, 2016

Some of today's top news stories use in case you didn't hear.

Good evening Kelowna. Here a some of the highlights from today’s news.

1) The mercury will continue to drop, falling to a frigid -16 C overnight and while no more snow is in the forecast, the partly clear skies will do nothing to help keep the Central Okanagan any warmer. If you’re out tonight, bundle up. The cold spell is expected to last through the rest of the month.

2) Interior Health has announced that as part of a province-wide effort to reduce the number of people dying form drug overdoses, two overdose prevention sites will be opened in Kelowna by the end of the week. One will be at the Living Positive Resource Centre and the other at the former Kelowna Health Centre downtown.

3) After finding a leak in the water pump station that serves Clifton Road (above High Road), High Pointe, Magic Estates and Wilden, the city is asking residents of those areas to immediately curtail their use of water until further notice.

4) Kelowna Rocket Nick Merkley has been cut from the Canadian World Junior hockey team for the second year in a row. His teammate Dillon Dube remains in the running for a spot on the national junior team that will play in the World Junior championship tournament in Montreal and Toronto in late December and early January.
