Sportsman’s Bowl Area – REVISED EVACUATION ORDER
The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) has revised an ordered evacuation of properties in the Sportsman’s Bowl area, due to immediate danger to life safety due to flooding.
Only 12 properties with 15 addresses on Sportsman’s Bowl Rd are now under an evacuation order.
An Emergency Social Services (ESS) Reception Centre has been set up at the Oliver Legion at 6417 Main St. Ample parking onsite and across the street.
Any affected residents staying with family or friends are asked to register as soon as possible by visiting the Reception Centre or by calling the RDOS Emergency Operations Centre 250-490-4225.
Look for the (new) current list of residences below that have been or should be evacuated. All of those should report to the reception centre in Oliver.
33 homes noted in evacuation order according to RDOS
17 of those units (homes or apts) are in the Bowl
The other 16 are adjacent to Secrest Hill Rd culvert or east of Hwy 97 below Sportsman’s Bowl
Confirmation that all notices have been served and residents warned to get out is not known at this time
Only those homes on Sportsman’s Bowl Rd are being evacuated – other homes under ALERT in the Park Rill basin are NOT being evacuated.
Mud and water rush through Fairview Mountain Golf Course in Oliver once again.
Picture above shows the force placed on concrete pole on driving range. The pole snapped off. A lot of damage centered where creek runs through the driving range area and joins Reed Creek. Mud can be seen east of the golf course on Old Golf Course Rd for a quarter of a mile.
