Status Quo For Sunnybrae Evacuation Order

Chatter in the Shuswap may be about Monday's mudslide outside of Canoe, but officials with the CSRD continue to deal with the aftermath of the April 7th mudslide in Sunnybrae.

Ryan Nitchie with the Shuswap Emergency Program says that an evacuation order for four properties is still in place "Currently the evacuation still stands for the four properties at the Sunnybrae slide. We`re currently awaiting an update from our geotechnical engineer, and he`ll be providing that after doing some monitoring on the site over the past couple of days - and then we`ll have a discussion regarding the evacuation order."

He says that it's still too early for any decisions about what to do with the two homes that were essentially destroyed.

Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road has been free of any traffic restrictions since last Friday.
