Water damage seemed relatively well contained Wednesday despite heavy rainfall that followed on the footsteps of record-hot weather.
The water flow in Mission Creek quickened to a flow of more than 120 cubic metres a second at its peak Wednesday, compared to 80 cubic metres a second on Tuesday. By Thursday morning dropped back to the 85 to 90 cubic metre a second range.
