Thanks to the co-operation of Mother Nature, flood risks around Manitoba are beginning to ease.
According to the latest flood update from the Province, the Red River has crested or has almost crested throughout most of Manitoba. It will peak again next week, but the peak will be lower.
A flood warning is still in effect for the Assiniboine River from St-Lazare to Brandon, and a flood watch remains for the Assiniboine River from Millwood to St-Lazare.
“Manitobans are reminded that flooding can affect road conditions quickly and people should stay away from ice and fast-running water,” reads a statement from the Province. “Do not attempt to drive or walk through fast-moving water. Before travelling, check road conditions by calling 511.”
