The Transit Future Plan Bus visited Osoyoos tonight next to the Town Hall, but unfortunately the accompanying Market On Main had to be cancelled due to thunderstorms. However, all was dry aboard the bus, where RDOS Rural Projects Coordinator Lindsay Bourque informed the public about the latest updates regarding transit requirements for the South Okanagan.

Alerts for: Okanagan Valley
2:06 PM PDT Wednesday 23 July 2014
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for:
- Central Okanagan – including Kelowna
- North Okanagan – including Vernon
- South Okanagan – including Penticton
Severe thunderstorm conditions possible – afternoon to after midnight.
Conditions are favourable for the development of dangerous thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and torential rain.
A low pressure system approaching the BC Interior is producing thunderstorms today and tonight over the southwest interior, Columbia, and Kootenay regions. These thunderstorms have the potential to become severe generating extremely heavy rainfall with local amounts of 25 to 50 millimetres in a few hours or less.
Please note the following…
…A watch means there is potential for severe storm development over a broad area.
…A watch is upgraded to a warning when severe thunderstorms are imminent.
Rapidly rising rivers and creeks can sweep away bridges, culverts, buildings, and people. Large hail can damage property and cause injury. Stay indoors when a thunderstorm strikes. There isn’t a place outside that is safe during a thunderstorm.
Just to clarify re. various inquiries about Market On Main’s Wednesday Night Market. We ran into Kansas, the singer scheduled to perform, and she confirmed the change in location starts tonight next to the Osoyoos Town Hall! 5:30 pm. Although…pending thunderstorm may play a factor.
