channels which are most prone to ice jam flooding include
obstructions in The Channel such as islands, locks, bridge piers
and docks; changes in The Channel such as narrowing of The
Channel, bends, gorges and intact ice cover; change in channel
depth from deep water to shallow water; and merger of river
channels.

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.
