The water levels continue to drop after setting a record height of 11.8 feet in Mendenhall Lake.
Bob Tschantz with the National Weather Service office in Juneau says that the flood warning was cancelled last night at midnight.
The high waters are a result of a glacial outburst, called a jökulhlaup, on Wednesday night.
“Waters are still running high–what we call bank full–but are not technically at flood level anymore,” Tschantz said.
The last measurement in Mendenhall Lake recorded levels at 8.25 feet and 10.5 feet in Mendenhall River.
Reports of damage are still coming in. Tschantz says construction workers at Brotherhood Bridge yesterday had to use the crane to remove trees that were caught up in the bridge pilings.
CBJ officials do not yet have a count of how many homes were flooded.
