The cleanup from Sunday evening’s record-setting storm continues in Brandon, but the immediate city itself is far from the only area effected. Monday morning saw major water buildup and flow in and around Highway 1 in the vicinity of the city as the 155.5mm of moisture that fell on the city on the previous day did its best to follow its natural runoff path.
That path included rapid flows over both the East and Westbound lanes just East of the city, resulting in a highway closure of both lanes just East of the city between the 110 access road and highway 10. Traffic was otherwise detoured into Brandon. Temporary lakes extended West towards Brandon and into property North of the Trans Canada stretching towards Brandon Municipal Airport.
Below are first a 360 degree interactive panorama showing the scale of water in the area followed by a handful of pictures to give further idea of the impact on Monday morning. Click/tap and drag within the panorama to explore the whole quite possibly once in a lifetime scene.
