SOUTHERN ALBERTA: As of Friday evening, the mandatory evacuation notice for Wallaceville residents was lifted, and the voluntary evacuation was reinstated.
If you are returning to the area, you must present valid ID and proof of residence at RCMP check points.
Officials lifted the mandatory evacuation order after the latest report from Alberta Environment, which shows the Highwood River has crested and is trending down.
But emergency personnel are still on high alert.
"There is still a considerable amount of water in the area, and we're asking that families returning to the area do so with extreme caution," said Ross Shapka, the emergency operations deputy director in a press release.
