Manitoba flooding: Updates from CBC reporters in the field

Manitoba has declared a provincial state of emergency as communities brace for floodwaters flowing east from Saskatchewan in the coming days.

Heavy rainfall in the last week of June washed out roads and highways, filled people's basements with water, and forced the evacuation of hundreds of homes in the province's southwest and Interlake region.

In addition to the provincewide state of emergency, at least 43 municipalities and communities have declared local states of emergency since June 28.

Stay up to date on the flooding situation with tweets from CBC reporters in communities across the province.
