The Flood Warning is cancelled for the Eel River At Fernbridge.

* At 3:15 AM Thursday the stage was 18.0 feet.
* The river fell below flood stage late Wednesday evening.
* Flood Stage is 20.0 feet.
* FORECAST...This river is forecast to fall below monitor stage of
  14.0 ft this afternoon, then forecast to recede to near 7.0 ft early
  Sunday morning.
* IMPACTS...At 18.0 feet, flooding of western portions of Cannibal
  Island Road, Camp Weott Road and adjacent areas is likely. This
  level may also cause flooding of the Salt River, Old River and
  other low lying slough areas. Flooding in these areas is
  exaggerated when crest timing in coincident with high tides and
  strong onshore winds, and when the river remains high for longer
  periods of time.
