City Prepares for Heavy Rainfall


Heavy rain is being forecast for Saturday in Saint John.

City crews are checking culverts and drains in preparation for a heavy rainfall.  Citizens are advised to check catch basins or ditches on or near their property for debris, and to remove belongings from any areas that may experience flooding.

Citizens in areas affected by flooding can help by keeping an eye on the grates and clearing debris that accumulates during a rainstorm. As well, secure any items stored outside, or put them inside to prevent damage or loss.

Motorists are advised to use caution when driving and to observe all barricades and road closures.  Check www.saintjohn.ca and stay tuned to your radio for updates. 

To report flooding or other damage to City infrastructure, or if you require assistance due to flooding, please call 658-4455. For all other emergencies, please call 911.
