A water main break has caused flooding and a sinkhole at the southwest corner lot of Highway 97 and Pandosy Street in Kelowna.
The sinkhole opened by the parking lot beside 21st Century Assurance Realty after a 10-inch water main broke early Thursday morning.

A roadway and a few properties in the area have suffered from water damage.
The City of Kelowna has had crews on scene since 5 a.m. They have a pumper truck to remove debris from the sinkhole and restoration services on site to fix the break.
It is expected that the water main will be fixed by the end of the day but restoration will happen throughout the weekend.
Traffic isn’t being affected at this time but people are being asked to stay from the area while crews make repairs.
