The Pipestone Creek swells over its banks west of Kola, Manitoba as rain continues to fall on Sunday morning.

Heavy rainfall is washing into rivers and creeks across Westman.

Here are some of the latest levels, as reported by Environment Canada's water office.

ABOVE: Pipestone Creek near Pipestone, at noon on June 30, 2014.

 

ABOVE: Gopher Creek near Virden, at noon on June 30, 2014.

 

ABOVE: Souris River at Souris, at noon on June 30, 2014.

The Assiniboine River, as measured at the First Street Bridge in Brandon, hit 357.32 metres above sea level at noon on June 30. That's up about 70 cm from Friday, and enough to push it into a technical flood stage.

The city says it has closed public access to Dinsdale Park, Queen Elizabeth Park and the Wheat City Golf course until further notice.
