CommentsSelkirk MB, April 3-13, 2007. Ice buildup and bad weather caused the Red River to breach its banks flooding the city of Selkirk. A two kilometre ice jam caused water levels to raise 60 cm. The subsequent flooding resulted in sewage spilling into the river and the evacuation of the Kiwanis I and II condominium buildings where 100 seniors were evacuated. In addition, numerous basements were flooded as well as the Marine Museum of Manitoba.
