CENTRAL OKANAGAN - It's been a rough weekend for many residents in the Central Okanagan trying to dry out from unusual spring flooding.

If you live near one of the region's many creeks and tributaries, you already know there's a lot of water coming down from the mountains. If not, you've likely been reading about evacuations, alerts and stories of flooding and it can be a little confusing. 

We broke down some of the worst hit areas to show you exactly where the flooding is taking place along with photos of the carnage taken today. Click on the placemarkers for photos. You can compare this to the map prepared by local authorities showing road closures, evacuation areas and alerts.
