High stream flow advisory issued for Okanagan

6/22/2012

With the potential for significant rainfall over the weekend adding to the snow melting at higher elevations, the BC River Forecast Centre has a High Streamflow Advisory in place for the Okanagan and Mission Creek.

The Central Okanagan Regional Emergency Program is reminding residents that all area creeks and streams could see increased flows and levels as a result of any additional rainfall. 

Please continue to stay away from area water courses as they could rise unexpectedly. 

As well, stay a safe distance from creek banks as they may be very slippery and unstable and could be subject to erosion and undercutting from high flows during this runoff.
