A flooding event located in Area “I” (Blue Sky Country) is threatening structures and the safety of residents in the area.
Because of the potential danger to life and safety, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has ordered everyone to evacuate the following 37 addressed properties:
• 4900 to 5240 Dot Ranch Cut-Off Rd;
• 4141 FX Ranch Rd;
• 5260 to 5580 Manning Creek FSR;
• 5265 to 10320 Merritt-Spences Bridge Hwy 8; and
• any other properties as identified on the attached map.
If you are in the described area, you must leave immediately.
If you have been evacuated, we recommend that you arrange to stay with friends or family. You can then access other Emergency Support Services (for meals and other necessities) by reporting to the nearest reception centre.
If you cannot stay with friends or family, please report to the Kelowna ESS Reception Centre at 1800 Parkinson Way, Kelowna, BC.
If you choose, you can assist the registration process by self-registering ahead of time using the Evacuee Registration & Assistance (ERA) Tool at: https://ess.gov.bc.ca/ or by calling the Emergency Support Services Info Line at 1-800-585-9559. You must still report to a Reception Centre to receive services.
You should register with Emergency Support Services (ESS) whether you need the support or not. This will help ensure that your loved ones and communities know where you are and know that you are safe.
