* reports of flooded roads continue as the mild temperatures and
heavy rainfall earlier this week produced rapid snowmelt with
some roads being closed and culverts being damaged.

Saint John... Aroostook and Piscataquis rivers. An ice jam on
the Aroostook River at Fort Fairfield was reported by to have
moved downriver to the international border. There is still
additional ice upriver near Masardis. All streams and rivers
continue rise steadily including the Mattawamkeag and Penobscot

* Flooding can rapidly develop in the vicinity of ice jams.
Those with interests along rivers and streams should remain
alert for ice jams and possible flooding.

current forecasts.

prepared to take action should flooding develop.
