With still at least two weeks till the full crest of the Red River, Winnipeggers and those in the surrounding areas are already starting to witness the awesome power of nature’s force. I spent some time today traveling around the city and beyond to document the flood through photos.

Overland flooding of the Red River, north Henderson (inside Winnipeg).
Can you imagine the force of the water that pulled this ice onto the highway?
The ice jams stop for no one.
