Soaked in Saskatchewan!

Friday forecast for SK, 24 June 11 (TWN)

When you think of Saskatchewan you normally think dry but that hasn’t been the case this spring and in many cases the province has been soaked for weeks.

For example, the city of Estevan has already had almost a year’s worth of rain –  324 mm since May 1st versus 333 mm annually.

Almost 1,000 residents of southern Saskatchewan have been forced from their homes due to severe flooding in the past week.

The influx of water is also having an impact in the neighbouring U.S. state of North Dakota – more than 11,000 people in Minot have been evacuated as water from the Souris River spills over dikes.
