reported. These include one on the East Branch of the Penobscot
river just upstream of Medway... and one on the Mattawamkeag River as
seen by the Maine Forest service. Additional ice jams will be
possible until all the ice is completely flushed out of the rivers.

continues. Many roads remain closed across the region. These include
but are not limited to:

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 10:32 PM EDT on April 16, 2014

Expires 3:00 PM EDT on April 17, 2014


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Thursday afternoon...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central Maine... north central Maine...
northern Maine... southeast Maine and west central Maine...
including the following areas... in east central Maine...
central Penobscot... northern Penobscot and southern Penobscot.
In north central Maine... central Piscataquis... northern

northeast Aroostook... Northwest Aroostook and southeast
Aroostook. In southeast Maine... central Washington... coastal
Hancock... coastal Washington... interior Hancock and northern
Washington. In west central Maine... northern Somerset.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* while the intrusion of much colder and drier air has helped slow
runoff and improve conditions across the region... many roads
remain closed due to flooding.

* Ice had broken up and was moving on the rivers especially the
Saint John... Aroostook and Piscataquis rivers. An ice jam on
the Aroostook River at Fort Fairfield had moved into New
Brunswick earlier Wednesday afternoon and now threatens
interests in western New Brunswick. There is still a possible
ice jam near Masardis and earlier water was reported 16 inches
deep in Oxbow flats. Many streams and rivers continue to rise
including the Mattawamkeag and Penobscot rivers. Colder
temperatures tonight will slow the rising waters but the threat
of flooding continues and flooding can rapidly develop in the
vicinity of ice jams. Those with interests along rivers and
streams should remain alert for ice jams and possible flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
