"People knew the rain was coming, there was no surprise, it might have caught people off guard. Most people were able to get out alright," he said.
While a task force yesterday focussed on rescue missions, today's efforts have been focused on recovery.
"It seems to me that a lot of people have been able to find shelter with friends in higher ground. People have been stoic in moving out of the area," Hayduk added.
"I will say that it's in times like this, judging by the online reaction, the #darfloods hashtag on Twitter, for example, there is a lot of support going out to flood victims and there's a lot of concern."
