Even with a big winter storm hitting us this week the provincial Emergency Measures Organization wants you to start thinking about the potential for spring flooding. Riverwatch 2018 has been launched and you can check out the riverwatch page on social media or on the Government of New Brunswick website.
River Watch program will officially start today, to provide New Brunswickers with information on the status of rivers, potential risks of ice jams, and other flood issues across the province over the coming weeks.https://t.co/4su25vlU0y pic.twitter.com/5xlzcJSaO1

The forecast model so far shows a similar flooding pattern to last year but with several heavy rainfall events or a rapid melt of the snow pack in the northern part of the province that could all change.
