Situation not improving for the Upper Nicola Band.

Chief Harvey McLeod says they have brought in pumps, but considering how high the lake is, he is not sure they will help at all.

As for when the 58 people who have been evacuated might get to go home, he says it looks like it won't be for a while.

"Right now we are taking it day by day, re-evaluating when people can return to their homes. But, it looks like it still may be some time."

100 others in 28 homes and four RV parks are under an evacuation alert.
