In the red river valley, as well as some other areas of Manitoba and Saskatchewan one of the contributors to flooding will be the fact that the soils went into the winter fully saturated. Everything on the ground, as well as some of what is in the ground will end up in the rivers. I am hearing stories that in october there was water standing in places no one had ever seen water standing, even in the spring. |
The three day thaw we had was just about enough to fill the culverts full of ice. This will slow the water flow to the rivers down until the roads wash out.
