The Deadhorse Creek in Morden has spilled its banks as of Saturday morning, with water overflowing onto a number of streets throughout the city.

City Manager Nicole Reidle tells PembinaValleyOnline water is over top of the Parkill Drive bridge, and that area of town is essentially not passable at this time. Meanwhile, the Alvey Street bridge has been completely washed out due to the rushing floodwaters of the Deadhorse Creek.

Reidle stresses many streets in the community are becoming impassable, and she is urging residents to be aware of how deep water is, because it can be deceiving. In general, at this time, City officials are asking residents to avoid all travel around Morden.

Sandbags are being prepared at the Morden Public Works shop, and residents can pick up as needed.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) has closed Provincial Road 432 (Mountain Avenue) from the junction of Highway 3 to 1.6 kilometers north of the corner. Water is over the road, but it remains open to local traffic. MTI has also closed PR 432 southbound from the junction of Highway 3 for about half a kilometer due to water over the road at Steven Street.
