According to the latest daily update from the Manitoba hydrologic Forecast Centre the Red River has crested at Emerson and is beginning to decline. It is near crest at Letellier and St. Jean, with all locations in the Red River valley expected to peak at levels between 2011 and 2009 spring flood levels.
Drains, creeks, and tributaries in the basin are at or above capacity, but water levels are stable or declining in most of the tributaries. Water levels on tributaries may start rising again, depending on the amount and intensity of precipitation received this week.
Stream flooding and overland flooding may be made worse by this additional rainfall.
Water levels on the Red River main stem from Morris and downstream continue to increase.
Water levels across the Red River basin are expected to remain high for an extended duration, likely into June.
