The province is warning some Falcon Lake cottage owners their cottages are in danger from rising water. 

The province’s Hydrologic Forecast Centre issued a high water advisory Saturday saying water from the recent rainfall and late spring runoff is putting some properties at risk.

The centre says some Falcon Lake cottages on low-lying lots could be at risk because the lake is higher than it should be.

It also warned cottage owners on West Hawk Lake the lake is currently at the upper end of its operating range.

The province says the high water may be in the area for a few weeks depending on how much rain falls in the area. People are advised to watch local waterways, stay away from ice and water and call 511 to check road conditions.

Up-to-date flood information can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/flooding or by calling 1-866-626-4862.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin.
