High Wind on Lakes and Overland Flood Warning for Southeast Manitoba

Manitoba Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre advises high winds developing this evening and lasting until early Thursday morning may result in high wind effects.
The advisory affects the south basin of Lake Manitoba, shorelines near Gimli on the west and Victoria Beach on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.
Wind speed and wave action could raise levels by as much as five or more feet.
The Hydrologic Forecast Centre is also issuing a high water warning for areas in southeast Manitoba due to the continued rising of water levels along rivers and creeks. A flood watch issued for northwest Manitoba remains in place. 
Property owners are advised to take precautions.
