Mayor Marc Thorne says the worst point was between 10am and noon today.
He tells CHSJ News he's proud of the efforts saying they were busy but not overwhelmed.
He says they didn't have bodies to spare because there were a lot of water rescues this morning.
About 60 displaced people are at the Kingswood University who have a conference centre.
Thorne describes it as the worst flooding he has scene in the town in a decade.
