A dry, warm spring is leading to a better-than-expected year for

flooding in Manitoba.

The Red River is expected to crest Thursday in Emerson where the

water is still well below the top of the town's dike.

The Red is almost free of ice, but a jam led to two flooded

garages in Petersfield, north of Winnipeg, yesterday.

The ice cleared by mid-afternoon and water levels quickly

started receding.
