Water and ice have filled the drainage system on Winkler's west side.


Warming temperatures over the past number of days has seen sped up the spring melt across the region. Joey Siemens was out early Monday morning and captured some impressive drone footage of the rushing water in the ditch along 14th Street in Winkler, as well in the field to the west of 14th Street - adjacent to Southview Drive.

As the snow and ice continue to melt, people are reminded to keep a safe distance from water-filled ditches, and other bodies of water.
