Rain has settled the dusty conditions in Vernon.
The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, in collaboration with the Interior Health Authority, has ended the Dust Advisory issued on Saturday, March 10 for Vernon due to high concentrations of coarse particulates.
“Changing weather conditions have contributed to improving air quality, and this is expected to continue over the next few days,” the ministry states.
