MANITOBA – The Assiniboine River remains under the flood spotlight this weekend.
While overland flood and tributary flows are starting to subside in some areas, flows in the Assiniboine River are continuing to rise.
The river is now forecast to peak simultaneously with the Souris River at the Portage Reservoir between April 12th and 14th.
Flood protections are being put in place along the river, and a flood watch remains in effect from Portage la Prairie to Headingley. A flood warning is in effect for the Souris River.
In Winnipeg, water levels at James Avenue are still at 18 feet, and should stay in that range for the next week while the Floodway remains in operation.
