A combination of clear skies and mitigation measures has led to a drop in creek levels for both Meighan and Deep creeks in Armstrong.
Emergency program coordinator Warren Smith says while that’s a good sign, it’s anticipated increasing temperatures will produce higher creek flows as the snow melts, and flooding remains a threat.
“City crews continue to deploy mitigation strategies and will monitor creek levels throughout the weekend,” says Smith.
The evacuation alert for about 60 homes in the Willowdale Rd, Patterson Ave and lower Becker Street areas, remain in place.
One hundred and sixty homes and businesses along the creeks in Lumby also remain on evacuation alert.
