Water levels in local rivers appear to be subsiding, says E.M.O coordinator

Emergency Measures officials say swollen rivers in the Chaleur region appear to be subsiding.

Though still a concern, Regional EMO coordinator Ken McGee says the flooding situation looks better than it does a few days ago.

But McGee tells the Northern Light that officials are keeping a watchful eye on things with rain in the forecast for the next few days.

Rising waters isolated three people on Mathilda Road in Middle River, while eight people were forced from their homes on Elliot Lane in North Tetagouche.
