Areal Flood Warning
Statement as of 12:04 AM EDT on April 18, 2015

... A Flood Warning for an ice jam remains in effect until 1030 am EDT
Saturday for eastern Aroostook County...

At 1200 am EDT... emergency management reported flooding across the
warned area. An ice jam at Washburn has caused the river to rise
well above flood stage. Local officials report West Gardiner Road
has been closed due to flooding. River levels can fluctuate rapidly
in the vicinity of ice jams.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 8:17 PM EDT on April 17, 2015

... Flood Watch now in effect through Saturday morning...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* a portion of northern Maine... including the following areas...
northeast Aroostook and Northwest Aroostook.

* Through Saturday morning

* rivers will continue to rise overnight into Saturday morning in
response to snowmelt. This will keep the threat of river ice
movement and possible ice jams along northern Maine rivers. Ice
is moving on the Aroostook and Saint John rivers and
tributaries. An ice jam remains in place on the Aroostook River
at Fort Fairfield though water appears to be flowing through the
jam. Along the Saint John river... an ice jam was located near
Saint Francis with ice moving through Fort Kent and Madawaska.

* Ice jams can develop and release very rapidly... creating
significant flooding with little to no warning. Persons with
interests along area rivers should stay alert for changing
river conditions. Always stay away from ice jams and never
cross a flooded roadway.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop. Remember... turn around don't drown! Be especially cautious
at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding.
