Mississippi Valley flood watch upgraded to warning

By Mike Vlasveld, 1310 News, April 27, 2018

Dalhousie Lake is now under a flood warning, as its level has risen much faster than expected and is continuing to rise.

Based on current conditions and inflows into Dalhousie Lake, the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority said levels are expected to increase another 20 to 30 cm bringing the lake to 157.50 to 157.60 m over the next 24 to 48 hours. This would be similar to conditions experienced most recently in 2014.

Levels in the Snow Road area above Dalhousie Lake are also at or near flood stage, but are expected to stabilize Friday.
