With heavy amounts of rain hitting parts of the Okanagan Valley, another mudslide has come down prompting a highway closure in the south.
Around 2 p.m. Sunday, DriveBC reported that Highway 3A is closed in both directions between Main Street and Stagecoach Road for six kilometres, due to a mudslide.
A Geo-technical assessment is in progress.
In the meantime, a detour is available through Highway 97 to Osoyoos, then north on Highway 3A.
This mudslide comes a week after a similar incident in Summerland, which reduced Highway 97 down to single lane alternating traffic until further notice.
