Oliver Mudslide

Just got back from taking a few photos quickly. I was in Penticton at work when this happened. According to the news, James Cambridge, a winemaker I used to work with was affected by this natural disaster. His house was spared but they lost a machine garage and some vehicles. Hopefully no one is hurt.

Thanks to the Oliver Fire Department and Search and Rescue. It’s been a busy spring for them with big fires at the Mesa Hotel and the Oliver wreckers.

Nature is a strong force.
