6 homes to remain on evacuation order for another week in Kaslo

The State of Local Emergency in the Kaslo area will be extended another week until May 1st.

That means the evacuation order for the 6 homes beneath the landslide will also remain in place for another week.

The decision came after further monitoring and assessment of the landslide above Zwicky Road.

Geotechnical engineers will continue to monitor the slide.

The RDCK is still reviewing the report received from geotech engineers last week, and more information will be made available at a public meeting tonight at 6 at the Legion hall in Kaslo.
