On Friday April 20th, 2018 shortly after 10:45 am, Alberta River Forecast Centre contacted the County with concerns of rising water levels on the Little Paddle River.
Lac Ste. Anne County asks residents in close proximity of the Little Paddle River area, to consider the relocation of livestock, feed and equipment from low lying areas.
