A storm that’s hit Manitoba will likely delay the crest of the Red and Assiniboine in Winnipeg, the province said at a news conference today.
The driving wind, rain and blowing snow are pounding the province’s flood defences, which are holding - for now.
In some areas, poor flying conditions caused by the storm could make it impossible for the province’s emergency helicopter ambulance service to get to remote places where flooding has closed more than 600 municipal roads, reporters were told.
