Flood watch issued in central Alberta
Water levels rapidly rising in Kneehill County and Paddle basin
A flood watch has been issued for parts of Central Alberta.
"The much above average snowpack combined with the above average temperatures over the past few days have caused the water levels in the creeks in Kneehills County to rise rapidly and overtop the banks in some locations," said an Alberta Emergency Alert.
"The snowpack in the Paddle basin is similar to conditions from last spring, and with the warm temperatures over the past few days has caused the water levels... to rise rapidly."
Water spilled over the banks of the Paddle River onto nearby fields under the same conditions last year.
River forecasters say there are no immediate threats to homes or other infrastructure.
