Manitoba Retailers Prepare for Spring Flood Forecast

With much of Manitoba receiving heavy snowfall in February and March and with spring upon us, many retailers and their customers are now thinking about the possibility of spring flooding. On March 24, Minister of Infrastructure Blaine Pedersen, issued the latest update on the province’s flood outlook. The level of flooding remains dependent on future weather conditions, and the risk of overland flooding has been slightly reduced since the last update in February. However, the risk still remains moderate to major across the province.
