An evacuation order has been issued for Fintry Provincial Park along Westside Road, due to flooding.
The Central Okanagan Regional District says one residence in the park has been flooded, and campers have been ordered out.
Carol Treller of Coldstream was camping in the park when they got the notice fro the fire department this morning.
“They said, ‘We’re being flooded out. Get out now.’ I said, can we still get to Vernon, and he said ‘Yes, if you get out now,'” Treller tells Kiss FM.
Treller says the camp manager’s house was flooded, in the area by the park’s front gate.
She says about 12 people were camping in the park at the time.
