WINNIPEG – There’s good and bad news on the flood front.
The Red River crested in Winnipeg on Tuesday and is already going down.
The province says the Red hit a peak of 19.4 feet yesterday and has dropped more than half a foot.
Further north along the Red, the Selkirk Bridge has reopened with a crest on the Red expected there this evening.
But there are still concerns about ice jamming along the Assiniboine River.
Provincial officials say more water could be flowing once the Portage Diversion reaches maximum capacity.
A flood watch has been issued between Portage la Prairie and Headingley.
A watch is still in place along the Boyne River downstream from Carman and flood warnings are in place for the Morris, Pembina and Souris Rivers.
