A landslide has washed out a section of KVR trail near Shinish Creek Road.

The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen Emergency Operations Centre continues to monitor a debris slide near Shinish Creek Road. The incident was reported just after 7 a.m. on Saturday, April 25, according to the regional district in a news release.

The Princeton Summerland Road was closed for hours yesterday until debris could be removed from the road which reopened just after 3 p.m. April 25.
