Chatham-Kent State of Emergency Comes to An End

Officials have called an end to the state of emergency in Chatham-Kent.

According to a release from mayor Darrin Canniff, repairs to dikes along the Thames River have worked and water levels have dropped more than 50 inches since peaking Friday evening.

Canniff says the situation has stabilized and the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority will continue to keep a close eye on river levels.

A state of emergency was issued Friday morning after the failure of a dike in the Tilbury area.
