EMO officials continue to moniter St John River

Officials continue to keep an eye on water levels along the St John River.

Residents in the Fredricton area are asked to use caution along waterways with new data showing water levels have increased thanks to some precipitation over the long weekend.

Residents are also being reminded to obey road signs posted about potential washouts and to be on the lookout for wildlife in search of higher ground.

Officials say water levels in Jemseg will stay just above flood stage for the rest of the week.
