Tree blocks Vernon road
Large tree down on southbound lane on Silver Star Road in front of BX fire department
With the quick storm came a quick toppling of a tree. Maybe two.
A large pine tree is blocking the southbound lane of Silver Star Road right in front of the BX-Swan Lake Fire Hall. There appears to be two large trees that came down when a storm blew through the North Okanagan shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday, March 2.
Crews are out with chainsaws tackling the trees.
Traffic, for now, is single-lane alternating.
