The Red River peaked at Ste. Agathe, St. Adolphe and the Red River Floodway Inlet on May 13, and is stable or declining at all locations upstream of Winnipeg.

The river is expected to remain high for an extended duration, likely into June. Drains, creeks, and tributaries in the Red River basin are at or above capacity but water levels are declining in most of the tributaries.

As fishing season starts, Manitobans are reminded to stay clear of the Red River floodway inlet and outlet structures, the Portage Diversion gate structures in the Portage Reservoirs, and actively flowing spillways on dams. Manitobans are also reminded to stay off waterways in flood stage including creeks, streams, rivers and the floodway. High flows, debris, and cold water temperatures present a significant hazard.

PTH 75 remains closed at the north and south ends of Morris. A detour utilizing PTH 3 through Carman and south to Winkler and onto PTH 14 to return to PTH 75 is in effect.

A flood warning remains for the Red River from Emerson to the Red River Floodway inlet, and from the outlet to Lake Winnipeg. A flood warning remains for the following Red River tributaries: Shannon Creek as well as the Morris, and Little Morris Rivers.

Eastern Region

A flood warning remains for Winnipeg River and the Whiteshell lakes area. A flood warning for the Birch River is downgraded to a flood watch, and a flood watch remains for the Whitemouth, Rat and Roseau Rivers.

The Winnipeg River system, upstream in Ontario, has received above normal rain and snowmelt since early April. Lakes and communities along this river system are expected to receive record flows at some locations, which depending on future rainfall, could exceed the previous record inflow experienced in 2014. Residents and property owners along this stretch of the river are cautioned for flooding as there is a potential for sustained high water levels in these areas.
