Water levels near St-Lazare continue their relentless climb, as the Qu'Appelle River joins the Assiniboine River.

The Assiniboine River in Brandon is down by 9½ inches from its crest.

As measured at First Street, the city said this morning that the water level was 1,181.6 feet.

But a second crest is expected in just over a week, with water coming from the Qu'Appelle River system in Saskatchewan.

Near St-Lazare, where the Qu'Appelle joins into the Assiniboine, water levels continue to rise — they've gone up more than a foot and a half in the past three days — and CBC reports that bridges in the town are underwater, with a dozen homes threatened.
