Your April 12 Morning Brief

Check out the top stories of the day in the Okanagan-Shuswap with Carmen Weld’s Black Press Morning Brief.

Damage from the floods of 2017 has yet to be repaired, but the City of Kelowna still has to forge ahead with flood control preparations for this spring.

Winds whipped up some burn piles in Enderby and Spallumcheen Wednesday, resulting in call-outs for the local fire departments.

Firefighters from across Western Canada converged in Kelowna this week for training aimed at saving their lives.

It all started with two donkeys. The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society now has a lot more than just a couple donkeys, and also two miniature horses.
