The weather continues to create problems for Manitobans, as more flood waters wash out provincial roads around Duck Mountain.

Provincial Road 366 and 367 near Pine River are closed at Highway 10 near Mafeking, as waters swept away chunks of the roadway.

A spokesperson for the province says they are aware of the washouts. Repairs won’t begin until water levels recede and it’s safe to do so.

Meanwhile, north of Gimli, strong wind gusts blew ice from Lake Winnipeg onto the shoreline damaging trees and buildings.

The ice smashed a window at a lakeside cabin at Camp Arnes, where volunteers say they will clean up once the ice melts.

“The ice came right inside…like a bulldozer just pushed right in,” said Geschiere.

Thankfully no one was injured, as the cabins were empty, she said.
