Public Info. Officer
With rain in the longer-term forecast next week for the Central Okanagan, the continued melting of the high elevation snowpack and area lakes at high levels, waterfront property owners and those living nearby along near creeks and streams are encouraged to take steps needed to protect their property.
The High Streamflow Advisory that was issued earlier this week by the BC River Forecast Centre for the Okanagan, including Mission Creek has now ended. The Centre says creeks have risen and are starting to gradually recede.
With more rain in the forecast through the weekend for the Central Okanagan and area lakes at extremely high levels, waterfront property owners and those in low lying areas near creeks and streams are encouraged to take steps needed to protect their property.
With the wet weather and continued high elevation snow-melt, the BC River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Okanagan, including Mission Creek. The advisory means river levels are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected. However, minor flooding is possible in low-lying areas.
