Storm clean-up continues but more rain expected – Winnipeg

WINNIPEG – Residents around the city are cleaning up after Saturday’s storm.

Trees were uprooted and streets turned in to lakes as more than 87 mm of rain fell in some areas on Winnipeg.

Environment Canada said since the storm started late Friday, around 53 mm of rain fell at the airport and 71 mm near The Forks. There were other areas hit harder although those numbers were not readily available.

Since Saturday, there have been 133 calls about toppled trees to the city. The majority of those calls Saturday were from Transcona where two forestry crews were out working until around midnight. Sunday morning three more forestry crews were out working in multiple areas of the city.

At the height of the storm, more than 4,000 customers were without power, mainly in Transcona and St. Boniface. However, calls were coming in steadily overnight and in to the morning.

Manitoba Hydro added extra crews overnight to help restore power as quickly as possible and were continuing to work on restoring power Sunday morning. A spokesperson told Global News outages were continually being reported and their resources were being prioritized.

Damage and basement flooding should be reported to the city by calling 311.
