Flood watches, warnings issued as rain forecast for long weekend in Manitoba

WINNIPEG - A weekend of rain could bring more flooding to various parts of Manitoba.

The province's forecast centre issued a statement Friday warning that southern and northwest Manitoba and the Interlake are forecast to receive up to 50 millimetres of rain by Canada Day.

Strong winds are also being predicted, which could cause problems around the lakes.

Both Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg are under a flood watch, while flood warnings continue for the Assiniboine River from the Shellmouth Dam to Brandon; all points along the Winnipeg River; Lake St. Martin and Dauphin Lake.

High water advisories are in effect for the Red River and the Saskatchewan River.

The province will deploy flood mitigation equipment to areas that may be most affected by flooding, and there is the potential the Red River Floodway could be operated to reduce the risk of basement flooding in the city.
