Farmers in Manitoba, Saskatchewan hit by flooding, crops and land under water

Water levels appear to be stabilizing in most of Manitoba and Saskatchewan after widespread flooding, but fear of massive damages is growing.

Water levels appear to be stabilizing in most of Manitoba and Saskatchewan after widespread flooding, but fear of massive damages is growing.

Saskatchewan Health officials say the hospital in Melville, about 145 kilometres northwest of Regina, will reopen today and patients are being moved back in.

A rising creek behind the facility led to a full-scale evacuation Tuesday of more than 150 acute-care patients and long-term residents.

While the flood is stabilizing in many areas, the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency warns peaks have not yet been reached on Crooked and Round Lakes in the Lower Qu’Appelle River watershed.

Agency spokesman Patrick Boyle says those lakes will pass record highs set in 1955.

Farmers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan say they are bearing the brunt of Prairie flooding because some producers could lose their crops and their homes.
