McNeely said they're hoping the rain lets up soon.

"There's not much we can do," he said. "We are at the mercy of Mother Nature."

He's inviting an engineer to come into the community to look at the damage and figure out what can be done.

Lance Jaques, who lives on the peninsula between the Mackenzie River and Jackfish Creek, is keeping a close eye on the water level.

He lives about 45 metres from the Mackenzie River and said that after a heavy downpour about 6 metres of the bank slid down into the river.

"We had kind of like a flash flood," he said.

As the rain continues, Jaques said he's just waiting to see what happens.
