RED LAKE – NEWS – It has been a rough couple of weeks for Red Lake.

Between road washouts, flooding, and a forecast with a lot of rain coming after a winter of major snow, getting a handle on spring has been slower than usual up at the end of Highway 105.

There remains flooding in Pikangikum and states of emergency in several northern First Nation communities.
