Thunder Bay’s Emergency Operations Centre is in standby mode.

A day after Mayor Keith Hobbs signed an emergency declaration, paving the way to host up to 600 evacuees from the James Bay region, the city has learned they may not come after all. With flood waters receding, both Kashechewan and Fort Albany First Nations have terminated their states of emergency and requested that community members already evacuated to Greenstone be returned home.

“Conditions can change very quickly in these situations,” Mayor Keith Hobbs said in a release. “We are pleased that Kashechewan and Fort Albany are no longer in immediate danger, and their community members will be returning home.”

Hobbs cautioned that other communities in the James Bay area are still under flood watches, adding the City of Thunder Bay is prepared to help out where necessary and possible.
