Flooding possible along N.B. rivers due to ice jams in some areas

Global News

FREDERICTON – New Brunswickers are under a flood watch advisory with rain forecast for Tuesday.

River Watch says rising temperatures will lead to ice movement on the St. John River and other river systems across the province within two days.

The agency says ice jams could create localized flooding.

It says people living along the rivers should be prepared and remain a safe distance from waterways.

Jams have been spotted on the Nashwaak River at MacLaggan Bridge, Tay Bridge, Durham Bridge and Marysville Bridge.

River Watch is also reporting ice jams on the Southwest Miramichi River below the Doaktown Bridge and at Norrad’s Bridge in Upper Miramichi.
