KAMLOOPS — The City of Kamloops says residents of Ramage Road north of Rayleigh can go back home tomorrow morning.

Nine homes were evacuated on April 27 due to movement on a hillside above the Yellowhead Highway, in the area of Palmer Forysthe Road.

The unstable hillside had been caused by a spring watering it, and crews were able to reroute that spring earlier this month.
