Ice Movement in New Brunswick Could Lead to Potential Flooding
River Watch New Brunswick has issued an ice movement flood watch for several of the province's rivers.
The agency is asking that people be aware of the situation, and say that river flows and levels are expected to rise over the next 24 hours and there is a probability of ice movement and ice jamming along the St. John River, and other river systems.
Known jams are o n the Tobique River near Gladwyn; and on the St. John River near St. Francis, ME.
Ice movement has been occurring in several smaller rivers and tributaries and in the St. John River below Mactaquac.
Other areas of concern include he Nashwaak River, the Saint John River near Woodstock, areas near Fredericton as well as the Nerepis River.
People living in all regions should be prepared and should remain a safe distance away from waterways.
We'll have more information as it becomes available.
