Manitoba's flood forecaster says the staggering amount of rain the province has seen this year is troubling for spring.
Philip Mutulu is worried about the impending effects of precipitation. He says in some parts of the province, the ground is saturated 160 per cent.
In November, water levels soared due to ice jams. Several families were forced to leave their homes.
Recently, flooding caused by ice jams in the Rural Municipality of Cornwallis, near Brandon, necessitated the community to announce a state of emergency.
In Winnipeg, The Forks is also plagued by the rising waters. The riverwalk is under water for the 11th time this year, says spokeswoman Clare Mackay.
The situation is getting dire. Some people along the Red River are meeting with local officials to devise a plan of action to protect properties from the spring thaw.
