Whiteshell Evacuation Order

Whiteshell Evacuation

WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government's mandatory evacuation order for northern areas of Whiteshell Provincial Park takes effect today.

Sylvia Lake, Eleanor Lake, Otter Falls, Barrier Bay and Nutimik Lake are all included, as well as Betula Lake which was announced earlier.

The province says rising water levels and rapidly evolving conditions are posing a significant risk to public safety.

People are strongly urged to not enter the areas or return to their properties and for those already there, they should plan to leave at the earliest opportunity.
