Flood waters are starting to slowly recede in Huntsville.  The discharge at Port Sydney dam is still exceeding 2013 highs. The South Branch of the Muskoka River is nearing a crest according to officials.

Meanwhile in Bracebridge Lake Muskoka continues to rise. Bracebridge Mayor Graydon Smith says flood conditions will persist for many more days. 

Muskoka Lakes Mayor Phil Harding says that waters are on the rise in area lakes and the Moon River has risen 16cm in the past 24 hours as the flood waters move through the watershed.

The forecast is calling for up to 40mm over the next few days which could compound the issue.
