Manitoba flood to be 2nd worst in 100 years: forecasters

The flood forecast for Manitoba keeps getting worse, with officials announcing on Wednesday that the peak flow of the Red River in Winnipeg will exceed the flood of 1950.

The province's chief flood forecaster, Alf Warkentin, said Wednesday the anticipated crest level for Winnipeg is more than a half-metre higher than what officials were predicting on Tuesday.

"It's a very serious concern for the city," he said at a flood briefing.

Well I live in the East coast so no worries here, but I've noticed that everyear Manitoba is receiving more and more flooding.

There's been major flooding here in the East mostly in Perth Andover and rural communities along the Tobique. Is there any particular reason this is continuing to grow at such an alarming rate?


This year is an anomaly in that it will have three distinct flood crests, rather than the usual one. The first crest hit the city last weekend, when the Red River surged over its banks because ice jams impeded its progress.


3 crests, that's pretty fierce, is it because of all the runoff from our eradic winter this season?

What say you ATS?
