WINNIPEG – The provincial government says the worst of this year’s flooding has passed for parts of southern Manitoba.
All major rivers in the south are now ice free.
The Red River is expected to remain stable at around 17 feet for at least a week.
The Assiniboine River is not quite done, as a flood warning remains in effect for the area between Portage La Prairie and Headingley.
The river has already crested in Brandon but it and the Souris River may peak at the same time at the Portage Diverson, meaning Portage la Prairie is still at risk of flooding.
The river is expected to crest there on Thursday.
