How bad is the flooding in Manitoba????

We are suppose to travel from BC through central Canada towards Ontario.
How bad is the flooding in Manitoba?
The river runs from the US to the lake north of Winnipeg, which means we need to cross it somewhere.
I hear more than 1500 people are out of their homes in Brandon??
Which way is the best to go and how bad is it?

Thumbs up Highway #1

Hi Gary, at this time I would stick to Highway #1. If any problems arise, you will find out over CB or a stop on a Truck Stop (HUSKY).
The Truckers use that road too, or they stay on the US side!
I drove those road a lot summer or winter.

Lightbulb Again flooded area around Brandon, Manitoba

Since the flood around Brandon is getting worst by the Minute, I would at this time stick to the Yellowhead Highway:
Little Fort - Jasper - Edmonton - Saskatoon - Portage la Prairie and you hit Highway # 1 for the drive east. Listen to a LOCAL Radiostation for flood reports and road closures. It's getting pretty bad according to the news.

Remember: FUEL is cheapest in Canada in EDMONTON
