Warm temperatures have led to significant flooding in parts of Coldstream.

There are reports of snow and frost melt causing high water problems near the regional district office, on Howe Drive, on Kalamalka Road and near MClounie Road.

A ditch along Kalamalka Road is raging, forcing district crews to dump a berm of gravel across Kalamalka Road at Aberdeen Road. Gravel has also been dumped along some driveways to prevent water from reaching homes.

Traffic has been disrupted on Kalamalka Road because of the closure at Aberdeen Road.
