City Monitoring Rainfall

Wed May 9, 2012

The City of Saint John Municipal Operations will be monitoring the expected rainfall over the next 48 hours.  Residents in low-lying areas or areas susceptible to flooding should take steps to prepare for potential flooding. Residents are advised to check eaves troughs and drainage swales, as well as catch basins or ditches on or near their property for debris.

Motorists are advised to use caution when driving and to observe barricades and road closures. Police will be monitoring any flooded roads and taking appropriate measures, including enforcement to ensure compliance with barricades and/or traffic signs, and obeying police officers signals.
