Resources still mobilized for flooding

Spallumcheen and Lumby continue to focus on high water

North Okanagan communities continue to cope with flooding.

Spallumcheen and Lumby are still both monitoring high water and maintaining emergency operations.

“The township’s emergency operations centre will continue to be in operation during regular business hours at this time (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.),” said Cindy Graves, Spallucheen’s deputy corporate officer.

“It will stand down on the weekend and not be open for statuatory holiday unless emergent issues arise. The township’s public works manager will continue to assess until Pleasant Valley Road flooding issues resolve.”

In Lumby, the current state of emergency remains in effect until Saturday.

“The evacuation order for 24 residences remains in effect, as does the evacuation alert for the 80 residences along the creeks,” said Jeremy Sundin, chief financial officer.

“These orders and alerts are being assessed, and information will be communicated as it becomes available. The village has been informed that provincial assessment teams will be in the community within the next 24 hours attending properties impacted by the recent flooding.”

The village is working with the Canadian Red Cross to address the immediate needs of residents impacted by the flooding.
