    Flooding along the Georgetown waterfront.

    You can hear the sigh of relief along the Georgetown waterfront.

    The Potomac River is receding back to its banks, and it looks like the worst of the flooding is likely over.

    Water levels along the Potomac are still above flood stage, but are leveling off. While more minor flooding is possible at high tide, the river is expected to continue to drop over the course of the day. High tide is at 11:15 a.m. and 11:55 p.m. at the Key Bridge.

    The flood wall at the Washington Harbour held back the water and there has been no further damage to the restaurants.

    People are still urged to stay off the river. Swift currents and floating debris makes recreational boating and fishing dangerous.
