New evac alerts issued

Evacuation alerts have been issued in three new areas along Osoyoos Lake, as rain Thursday pushed lake levels upward.

Twenty-three addresses along Spartan Drive, Lakeshore Drive, Crab Apple Court and Cottonwood Drive should prepare their belongings to leave home on short notice.

All previous evacuation alerts and orders remain in place. An interactive map of impacted areas can be found here.

As of Thursday afternoon Osoyoos Lake was at 916.29 feet, bumped up by Thursday’s rain, but no longer climbing.

Forecasts for the Similkameen River — which flows into the Okanagan River just south of the lake — were downgraded further on Thursday and are expected to gradually decline over the coming days.
