But now the 1,300 people will be allowed to go back home tomorrow morning at 7. The town was evacuated Tuesday after heavy rains near overwhelmed the Renwick Dam.

The water has been steadily dropping, but the mayor says it'll still be a few days before the situation returns to normal. But for now, he says, "We're keeping our heads above water."
