Rocks came down, crushing Green Lake Road in Okanagan Falls just after midnight Sunday, May 21. That road, which is just beside Highway 97, is currently closed.
Highway 97 in Summerland is down to single lane alternating traffic with intermittent closures due to a landslide that took place there in early May.
