16 Apr 11 - "Flood waters now cover an unprecedented area of Manitoba, stretching from the Saskatchewan border to eastern Manitoba, and from The Pas to the U.S. border," says this article on winnipeg.ctv.

The province says more than 700 roads are either shut down or restricted because of flood waters.

Hi Robert,

The bottom of ancient Lake Agassiz is fast filling up.

To give our situation some perspective, I can tell you that It's quite disconcerting to be sitting on the bottom of a bowl as water starts flowing in over the bowl's rim from all sides.

Sincerely,
C. Peter Davis
Winnipeg, Manitoba


 

C. Peter is referring to Lake Agassiz, an immense glacial lake in the center of North America.

At its greatest extent, Lake Agassiz covered much of Manitoba, western Ontario, northern Minnesota, eastern North Dakota and Saskatchewan - an area larger than all of the modern Great Lakes combined - and held more water than all lakes in the world today.

Lake Winnipeg, Lake Winnipegosis, Lake Manitoba, and Lake of the Woods, among others, are relics of the ancient lake.
