CBC Manitoba: City of Brandon ‘closely watching’ river level, forecasts amid flood warning

April 17, 2024 — 

The city has experienced overland flooding a few times over the last number of years, but mostly in low-lying areas, Praznik said. The city has swung between drought conditions and overland flooding, he said.

That may be the new normal, according to Jay Doering, a senior scholar in civil engineering with the University of Manitoba.

“The new norm, as I keep saying, is that there is no norm. Things keep swinging between extremes,” he told host Janet Stewart during a Tuesday interview with CBC Manitoba’s Radio Noon.
