Creeks, rivers rising in Manitoba as snow melts but no flood warnings yet

WINNIPEG - Creeks and rivers in Manitoba are starting to rise as the province's snowpack begins to melt.

But provincial officials say there are no flood warnings or watches yet.

In its first flood bulletin of the year, the province says water is starting to gather in rural fields since culverts and ditches are still frozen.

Many parts of the province are still under snow but officials say run-off is expected to increase next week.

The province says it's clearing ice in key diversions and putting flood-fighting equipment in place in anticipation of the melt.

Much of the province is expected to be hit with up to 10 centimetres of snow this weekend and officials say they are monitoring the situation.
