Water levels are down significantly in parts of High River, with some roads completely dry now.

Unfortunately, many parts of the East side of High River, most noteably Hampton Hills are still under a lot of water and it could be days before residents are allowed to return to their homes.

Below are pictures taken by Sean Emmett of the parts of High River that are accessible. More updates will come as soon as they are available.
