A mandatory evacuation order was lifted in Perth-Andover today after water levels dropped on the St. John River.

More than 300 residents were told to leave over the weekend after an ice jam raised fears of flooding and the Red Cross had to set up an emergency shelter.

Officials will be keeping a close eye on the river for the next few days especially with rain in the forecast.
