Parker Cove Flood UPDATE, Okanagan Lake Community

Flood water from Whiteman Creek has been diverted away from the Okanagan Lake community revealing a startling amount of damage.

Early Tuesday morning residents of Parker Cove of Westside Road were awakened after Whiteman Creek burst its banks flooding many homes and turning one of the communities roads into a river.

At least a dozen homes were surrounded by fast-moving water, despite a wall of sandbags built by the residents, volunteers, and the Okanagan Indian Band.

Warm weather melting mountain snowpacks are being blamed for the high water flow

Ministry of Forests has issued several flood and high streamflow warnings for the Okanagan

Officials remind people to,

• Stay clear of fast-flowing rivers and potentially unstable riverbanks

• Avoid recreational activities such as fishing, swimming, boating, or hiking near high

streamflow rivers or streams

• Remember, high streamflow can easily trap strong swimmers, increasing the risk of drowning
