The province has issued an overland flood warning as a result of today’s rain storm.

Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation said today’s heavy rainfall could cause small streams and their tributaries in several areas to overflow their banks, including those in the Interlake, southwest and northwest regions.

The province said 150 millimetres of rain may have already fallen in the Gladstone-Woodside area.

Localized flooding has already been reported in the Pipestone Creek and Westbourne areas, with overland flooding in the Reston area.

Specific areas expected to receive heavier rainfall between tonight and Monday include: Minnedosa, Neepawa, Russell and Riding Mountain National Park; Dauphin, Roblin and Winnipegosis; Killarney, Pilot Mound and Manitou; Ste. Rose, McCreary, Alonsa and Gladstone.

A flood warning has been set for the Saskatchewan River near The Pas.
