EMO Urges NB'ers To Prepare for Heavy Rain & Possible Ice

Posted on Thursday, January 11, 2018 14:06 PM

The province's Emergency Measures Organization is advising New Brunswickers to be on alert over the next few days thanks to more weather heading our way.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement about a couple of systems which are expected to bring heavy rainfall and freezing rain to the southern half of the province.

EMO says the icy precipitation could lead to a build-up of ice on roads and power lines which could lead to possible outages.

Residents are urged to protect their properties by clearing drains, securing items and take precautions if properties have experienced flooding in the past.

New Brunswickers are also reminded to have an emergency kit on hand with everything needed to sustain themselves for at least 72 hours following a storm.
