Tomorrow At 10: The Municipality of Morris, MB Worries About Overland Flooding

The City of Winnipeg is protected by many different types of flood prevention as in dikes and spill ways. But what about the towns between Grand Forks and Winnipeg?

The City of Winnipeg is protected by many different types of flood prevention as in dikes and spill ways. But what about the towns between Grand Forks and Winnipeg?

WDAZ's Victor Meza stops in Morris, Manitoba to find out what they fears are and ways they protect their city ever year.

The city of Morris is doing whatever they can to keep their businesses running if their main artery Highway 75 is closed.

But they also have to be ready for evacuation if they are cut off.

"We may only have one entrance coming into town that is still open. A lot of the years that one closes down in a real bad flood and then we're isolated and most of the people are evacuated," said Time Lewis of Morris, MB.

Well have more on that story tomorrow night at 10.
