Heavy rain has wreaked havoc in parts of Vernon.
The North Okanagan city has been hard hit with precipitation over the last 24 hours.
Vernon received more than 12 millimetres of rain between Thursday morning and Friday morning.
The heavy rainfall has led to Vernon Creek spilling its banks.
Most of the localized flooding is along 24th Avenue and Polson Park.
Cliff Battensby, who lives in the 3400 block of 24th Avenue, told Global News that his basement was submerged in at least four feet of water, while his garage took in about a foot of water.
“All of sudden the creek rose, then it filled the whole yard and went into the basement,” said Battensby.
“The whole block was basically under a foot of water or more.”
The City of Vernon says staff will be keeping a close eye on water levels over the coming days.
“We have crews on now, they will be on all night and tomorrow. The crew’s job is to maintain public infrastructure,” said mayor Victor Cumming.
Cumming wants to remind residents to keep away from fast-running creeks and steer clear of the unstable banks.
Currently, Vernon Creek at the outlet at Kalamalka Lake is at 5-to-10 year flood levels, but it still could rise — depending on the amount of rain that falls on the region in the coming days.
