RDOS still assessing damage in flood-affected areas

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen is continuing work on Rapid Damage Assessments in areas affected by floods.

Some homes that were originally assessed but re-damaged during the secondary flooding between Nov. 29 and Dec. 1 may need to be assessed again.

Homes receive colour-coded placards. Green means they are okay to be re-inhabited after all evacuation orders lift, yellow means some restricted access, and red means do not enter. Find more re-entry information click here.

On Friday, the RDOS is conducting an aerial flyover of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers which will help determine updated statuses of evacuation alerts and orders. Find the full current list here.

Travel on Highway 3 is still essential-only. Travel is not advised on backcountry and Forest Service Roads, as they may be compromised or unstable due to flooding.

Sandbagging locations are still available, which can be found here, but they will be demobilized in the coming days as the flood threat continues to diminish.
