PROVINCE ISSUES HIGH WIND EFFECT WARNING FOR LAKE MANITOBA

Manitoba Infrastructure’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre advises that forecasts of high winds developing Thursday and expected to last until Saturday morning have resulted in a high wind effect warning for the south basin of Lake Manitoba and shorelines near Gimli on the west and Victoria Beach on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.  Areas of south Dauphin Lake and Winnipegosis may also be impacted.

Lake Manitoba is currently at 811.32 feet above sea level (FSL).

Wind speed and wave action could raise levels by as much as five feet or more.

Property owners are advised to take precautions.
