Red River Valley flooding can exceed 2009 levels

So long-awaited spring has come to Manitoba.

However, this led to some not so pleasant consequences. Due to a large amount of precipitation that was seen in winter, the province is preparing for flooding.

As flood experts explain, this year the province can face very strong flooding that can exceed 2009 levels. On condition that the weather will be warm and sunny, the water level may be slightly lower than in 2009.

The peak of the flooding is expected from April 12 to April 23. At the moment it is still unknown whether Highway 75 will be closed or not. Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler said that the province is preparing for the worst, but hopes for the best.
