The towns of Okotoks, Black Diamond and Turner Valley are all under a state of emergency due to flash flooding.
In Okotoks the flood watch has been upgarded to a flood warning and anyone situated close to the river should take appropriate measures to avoid fllod damage.
Okotoks Mayor Bill Robertson says they do expect water levels to rise here in town.
"The high volumes of water in Black Diamond indicate to us that we're going to have rising waters througout the afternoon. It's likely to crest early sometime this evening, but we don't have an exact time for that," Robertson said.
In High River, the Town is under an emergency evacuation alert.
RV's can make their way to the AG Grounds if needed, and all other residents should make their way to Highwood High School on 12th Avenue.

The area directly affected has been evacuated, and no one is in any immediate danger, but residents are urged to stay indoors as Energy Regulator staff are on scene to fix the leak.
In Black Diamond, councillor Michel Jackson says there was over six feet of water in parts of town.
"This morning at 6:30 there was water up to the windows of cars, and there was at least six feet of water in the Lions Campground," said Jackson.
