Flooding Recedes

Thunder Bay is on stand down mode as a state of emergency in the far north has eased. Residents from Kashechewan and Fort Albany First Nations are terminating their states of emergency now that the flooding in the James Bay area has receded. Our city was asked to look at the possibility of hosting some 600 evacuees.  The emergency has been downgraded and flooding in the communities has stabilized.
