Nashwaak River in Stanley, NB, 15 March 2013 (TWN)

The Nashwaak River is jammed with ice which has caused flooding in the community of Stanley, about 40 km north of Fredericton in central New Brunswick.

Homes, businesses and even the fire hall in the village of about 500 have been flooded although waters are now receeding.

At the peak of the flood, about one metre of water had covered the main road and the village centre.
