Some Lumby residents can go back home.

The Village of Lumby intends to downgrade all evacuation orders to evacuation alerts effective Thursday at 8 a.m.

“While the evacuation orders are being downgraded, residents should be aware of the potentially dangerous conditions resulting from the recent flooding,” states a village release.

“The Provincial Rapid Damage Assessment Team has identified some of these hazards, and residents are strongly advised to address these prior to reentering and/or inhabiting their property.”

There will be an information session for evacuated residents Wednesday evening. Evacuated residents will be contacted with information pertaining to the time and location of this event.

Lumby will remain in a Local State of Emergency until Saturday.

In anticipation of the current weather front moving through the area, Coldstream has activated its Emergency Operation Centre to level one or monitoring.

Residents are asked to take measures to protect their private property.

1. Kalamalka Road – across from Postill Drive

2. West Kal Road – across from the Country Club
