UPDATE: Peachland state of emergency rescinded

(UPDATE: June 11 @ 10:35 a.m.) - The State of Local Emergency for Peachland has been rescinded due to a reduction in the threat of flooding.

States of Local Emergency remain in effect for Kelowna, West Kelowna, and the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

(Original story: May 6 @ 12:50 p.m.) - The District of Peachland declared a local state of emergency to deal with a landslide at Princeton Ave. and water flowing across Hwy 97.

The state of emergency is a proactive approach that gives crews access to specific private properties to protect public infrastructure.
