An evacuation order remains in effect Friday for seven homeowners outside of Salmon Arm.

Massive chunks of debris are scattered around a site near McIntyre creek.

Logs and boulders were washed down the waterway Wednesday afternoon. They have damaged a local road and at least one of the houses.

Emergency officials ordered people living within 50 metres of the creek to get out of their homes Wednesday night.

There is more rain in the forecast, leading to serious concern the problem could get worse.
