Local State of Emergency Declared for Red Wing Resorts
The Penticton Indian Band and the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) have declared a Local State of Emergency for Red Wing Resorts. Red Wing Resorts is immediately west of the City of Penticton along Okanagan Lake and the Penticton Channel.
High water levels in Okanagan Lake have raised the potential for flooding but at this time there is no call for an evacuation of any homes in the Resort area. The Local State of Emergency has been issued so that local responders can react quickly if required. Any residents affected by any changes that warrant potential evacuation will be contacted directly.
