I don’t know about you guys… but I got caught right in the middle of what I thought was the worst of the rain early this afternoon. My hair = not happy.
But with all of the flooding we’ve experienced in the past few weeks, I was curious to see if any other areas in Vernon looked as bad as my hair!
First I made my way down Kal Lake Road and let me tell you.. you’re going to want to avoid that at ALL costs. That strip is a mess! Watch out for flooding in the lanes coming towards town…
Next up was — you guessed it — Kal Dock. At this point, it looks as though the lake level is even with the surface of the dock and with the added wind creating waves, it is now crashing ONTO the dock. Unfortunately I couldn’t get close enough to the dock to really capture the water level, but I think everyone gets the idea at this point!
I then turned the corner after Alexander’s and came upon this new mini lake in someone’s front yard off of Kalavista Drive…
Naturally I took the highway back to the radio station, with the Sinkhole completely slipping my mind. Good news though — It looks like they’re making progress!
Traffic isn’t atrocious at this point, but please be patient with delays.
Keep checking for updates on different areas of Greater Vernon!
