Severe thunderstorm watch issued for Okanagan Valley and Boundary


The Okanagan and Boundary are under a severe thunderstorm watch.

The alert was recently issued by Environment Canada due to the possibility of dangerous thunderstorms, which may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torrential rain.

“Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads,” the alert says.

A thunderstorm watch was also issued for South Thompson this morning, and that alert remains in effect.
