Several factors including this week’s supermoon and a low pressure system over New Brunswick have led to the highest tides of 2016 in the Bay of Fundy.

Two surfers rode the tidal bore up the Petitcodiac River to take advantage of the high tide.

Environment Canada says the tide was on average between 30 and 50 cm above the predicted level by early afternoon.

A storm surge had been in place in Charlotte County with some minor flooding reported along the waterfront in St. Stephen.
