A flood warning continues for low-lying areas along the Assiniboine River between Virden and Grand Valley, near Brandon.
In its latest flood bulletin this afternoon, the province said between 20 and 70 millimetres of rain have fallen across southern Manitoba. By the time the storm ends tonight, totals of up to 100 mm are expected in some areas.
Meanwhile, a flood watch remains in place for low-lying land near the Souris River and small streams and tributaries across southern Manitoba.
Other areas likely to be affected include the Altona, Morden and Winkler areas, where soil moisture is already high due to heavy rains that fell during a mid-May storm. Run-off from the current rainfall is expected to be similar to that storm, producing near bank-full flows.
