State of emergency lifted

A state of local emergency has been rescinded on Westbank First Nation land.

The Central Okanagan Emergency Operations Centre says the threat of flooding is now reduced.

An evacuation alert for 9284 Hodges Rd. has also been lifted.

One property remains on alert, however, while an evacuation order for another property in West Kelowna is still in effect.

States of emergency remain in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland, and the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

As of this morning, Okanagan Lake is at 342.65 metres above sea level, a reduction of one centimetre from Wednesday.

Flood protection measures should stay in place, however, until the lake drops another 17 cm to its "full pool" level of 342.48 m.
