MANITOBA RECOMMENDS VOLUNTARY EVACUATION FOR AREAS OF THE WHITESHELL FOLLOWING HEAVY RAINS

GOV'T. OF MANITOBA
Manitoba Sustainable Development advises a voluntary evacuation is underway in some areas of the Whiteshell following heavy rains as resulting high water has caused deteriorating road conditions.
A number of roads will wash out leaving cottage owners stranded.  Officials are contacting cottage owners in the following areas and recommending they evacuate:
• Block 5, Caddy Lake;
• cottage owners east of Block 9 on PR 312; and 
• no vehicle access south of the ambulance garage on South Shore Road in Falcon Lake.
The road to Florence and Nora Lakes is also washed out, and the Mantario Trail is closed until further notice.
Residents and cottage owners only can call 1-204-349-2201 for information between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. today and tomorrow.
