Recent rain and snowmelt continues to contribute to a steady rise in water levels in North Okanagan lakes and streams. Especially vulnerable are low lying properties along the Shuswap River from Sugar Lake through to Mara Lake. An evacuation alert is in place for this entire area.
Additional sand and sandbag locations will be established by mid afternoon June 19 at:
- Grindrod - intersection of Crandlemire and Foxwood Rd
- Cherryville - 205 Aumond Rd
