Holiday Park evacuations

Evacuations in the Central Okanagan continue, with several properties in Holiday Park RV and Condo Resort issued evacuation orders early Monday.

Along Rest Route, numbers 439 to 461 are under evacuation order, while on Water Way, numbers 403 to 417 also received the order.

A new evacuation order has been issued for 233, 234, 235, 236 and the unit opposite 233 at 720 Commonwealth Road.

This marks yet another day of evacuations, after storms and snowmelt late last week brought heavy water flow into North and Central Okanagan communities, causing heavy flooding.

Affected residents are asked to register with Emergency Support Services volunteers at the Salvation Army Church reception centre at 1480 Sutherland Ave.

The centre has reopened to accommodate the new evacuees, and will close again for the night. The centre will open again at 11 a.m.

The RDCO is also warning residents in affected areas to be mindful of drinking water and food safety, as well as safety of electrical and gas utilities when evacuation orders are lifted. The regional district is also advising caution over removing furniture and building materials.

The Emergency Operation Centre is working on assessing properties under evacuation orders, and hopes to have residents back home as soon as possible. However, no timeline has been issued on the process.

The following evacuation orders remain in effect:

  • Order - 415 Commonwealth Road, Holiday Park– Beachview building
