Applications available at City of Greenwood office.
As most of you are aware, Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the South, Central, and North Okanagan as well as the Boundary.
The alert suggests heavy downpours, hail, strong winds, and lightning will be prevalent throughout the region as early as Thursday afternoon (May 11, 2017).
After the effect of last week's storm, the region is bracing for the impact and potential devastation that could ripple through the Okanagan. A weather system as predicted, coupled with spring snow melt, is expected to contribute to already-rising river levels and thus the risk of flooding is elevated.
"Quickly flowing water and the adjacent river banks are potentially unsafe. Don't approach washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts, and keep away from creek and river banks."
The Central Okanagan Emergency Operations Centre and Emergency Management BC have requested provincial help to assist in sandbagging and flood relief. All city, regional, and local districts are working to assist residents and Interior Health, Fortis BC, and BC Hydro are all ready in case of emergency situations. The federal government is ready to provide support and resources in the event a federal response is requested.
The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association would like to extend our support to the communities in advance of the storm. Please let us know how you are doing, what you need, and how we can help.
While our consumer marketing efforts will continue to promote the region, as we know this is crucial to business in a season that has been off to a rocky start, it's important to address the potential severity of this, and be ready to support our neighbours and communities should they need a hand.
To be prepared, we have listed some resources to keep you informed and encourage everyone to put safety first.
