Drone video shows extent of flooding in Oliver area

"We are definitely seeing much more significant flooding than we usually do in our regional district and the experts at the River Forecast Centre and Ministry of Environment are advising us that a lot of this is due to the impact from the wildfires previous year", she said.

Due to the threat of flooding and debris flow that may threaten life, safety and cause significant property damage, a declaration of state of local emergency has been ordered for the community of Cawston in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, Electoral Area B.

Emergency centres have been set up in each of those communities.

More information can be found at: 250-490-4225.

Declaring a state of local emergency enables local authorities to exercise the emergency powers listed in the Emergency Program Act.

Flash flooding, failure of slopes and debris flows can occur, making even small creeks unsafe, the RDOS says. No properties have been evacuated as yet.

Currently, 17 homes are evacuated in the Oliver area.

The RDOS says the extension of the order area will allow for them to continue emergency works to reinforce Park Rill Creek on the property.

In Tulameen, an evacuation order has been issued for 148 properties and the remainder of the town is under an evacuation alert.

The regional district is also providing geotechnical assistance to areas with stability issues due to high water tables and runoff.

Evacuation orders had also been posted for the Sportsman Bowl area north of Oliver and a mudslide forced the evacuation of properties in the Killiney Beach area on the northwest side of Okanagan Lake.
