Evacuation order partially rescinded

One family will be able to get back into their Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road home, but they’ll have to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.

The evacuation order, issued by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District on April 23 following a debris flow on McIntyre Creek, was partially rescinded on Tuesday.

The residents  of  6098 Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road  are  now permitted to return to their property, but remain on evacuation alert and must be prepared to leave on short notice.

“This rescind order only applies to the one property and residents will be given as much advance notice as possible if evacuation is required,” reads a Shuswap Emergency Program release. “However, it may be limited notice due to rapidly changing conditions.”
