2015 Flood Outlook

March 27, 2015

February 27, 2015

During the year, flood forecasters monitor the amount of rainfall and snow and the impact on levels on rivers, lakes, creeks and streams.

River Safety Notice: Dangerous ice conditions during ice cutting and ice breaking operations. The Manitoba government is preparing for potential spring ice jam flooding.

Ice cutting machines began working on or about February 9 on sections of the Red River beginning in the Netley Lake area and will move upstream towards Selkirk. In February, the Amphibex ice breakers started operating at the mouth of Netley Creek.

Dangerous ice conditions may not be obvious but will exist.

Ice fishers, cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and others going on the frozen river must:

  • Use caution on the ice.
  • Stay away from the ice cutting and ice breaking equipment.
  • Watch for posted warning signs about dangerous ice.
  • Watch for notices to remove ice shacks and remove them promptly.
