Chance of Flooding For Manitoba


May 2, 2010 — It's been raining cats and dogs across western Manitoba for the past few days, and now provincial officials have issued a flood advisory for some areas.

The rains have been packing a punch across western Manitoba --up to 125 mm has fallen in some areas and because of the heavy downpour, streams are rapidly rising.

The Duck and Porcupine mountians are at critical risk for a crest. Meanwhile, smaller streams and ditches have overflowed their banks, fields are also flooded.

Officials are warning there's a chance roads could also be washed out.

Municipal authorities are watching for flooding in the Garland and Duck rivers, and are cleaning the scattered debris from the water to lessen the effects.

Streams are also ridging in the Riding Mountain region, but they're not expected to flood.

Meanwhile, the rain has been steady in southern Manitoba, but there are currently no flood concerns.
