WINNIPEG – As Manitoba continues to enjoy warm weather, overland flooding has started to subside across parts of southern Manitoba.
Levels on many waterways are still high as spring run-off continues, but the Red River has stabilized in Winnipeg.
Levels are expected to remain around 18 feet at James Avenue and should stay there for the next week.
Flows on the Assiniboine are rising though as some ice remains on the river and in the Portage Diversion.
A flood watch is still in effect for Portage la Prairie and Headingley while a warning is now in place along the Souris River.
The province also says flood protection will be needed for properties around Pelican Lake.
The Morris, Roseau and La Salle rivers have crested and flows are going down.
