Flooding continues in Fredericton where water levels have increased again to a point where the benchmark of 2008 was reached.

New Brunswick’s Emergency Measures Organization is warning levels are rising along the southern region of the St. John River basin.

Residents from Jemseg and Gagetown to Quispamsis and Saint John are being told to be on high alert and expect flooding if it has occurred in the past.

Several neighbourhoods of Saint John are under a voluntary evacuation (see map above) due to flooding, road closures and rising waters along the river.
