The North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) says water levels on Chippewa Creek continue to drop. 

The level is just above where it began before Monday’s storm event. 

Officials say the level peaked at 14.53 metres after the first wave of rainfall and descended after that. 

In total, the creek rose 1.32 metres, mostly in one hour on Monday evening. 

The average level for the creek at this time of year is 13.2 metres.

The NBMCA also says the LaVase River peaked Wednesday morning and is now dropping.  

It rose 0.65 metres during the weather event while the Wasi River only rose 12 cm.  

Officials say this shows how localized the storm intensity was, mostly centred around North Bay. 

Both the flood warning for Chippewa Creek and the water safety statement will expire at 5 pm. 

NBMCA land crews continue clearing trees and brush at the Laurentian Escarpment, Laurier Woods and Elks Beach Conservation Areas, along with the Kinsmen Trail.
