Updated / Heavy rainfall advisory
(Public Safety and Solicitor General)
30 September 2015
FREDERICTON (GNB) – The Department of Public Safety's Emergency Measures Organization issued an updated weather advisory today:
Environment Canada rainfall warnings remain in place for all of New Brunswick. The rain will continue into tomorrow. Forecasts have been updated and now suggest some areas of the province could receive up to 180 mm of rain. Central and southern regions are forecast to receive the highest amounts.
The heavy and prolonged rain will create a risk of localized flooding for much of the province over the next 24 hours.
This event has the potential to bring flash flooding and localized flooding in several streams, tributaries and rivers. The impact will be greatest in central and southern regions. Water levels are expected to rise in the Nashwaak, Magaguadavic, Kennebecasis and Saint John River Valley watersheds.
New Brunswickers in the Saint John, Hopewell Cape and Neguac areas should also be on alert for high water levels along the coastline as tides will be at or near maximum levels today and tomorrow.
Homeowners who have experienced flooding during heavy rain storms in the past should take all necessary precautions including elevating or removing possessions from basements or other low-lying structures and clearing leaves and debris from drains.
While this weather is not expected to have an immediate effect on major river systems, it could lead to localized flooding, particularly where normal drainage systems are overwhelmed. Areas of poor drainage may sustain standing water and minor flooding may occur. People living or working along streams, tributaries and small rivers are reminded to be on alert and to avoid fast-moving water.
Significant rainfall brings the risk of hazardous driving conditions. Heavy downpours may cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Motorists should use caution, reduce speed to avoid hydroplaning and obey traffic control measures.
Severe weather increases the risk of power outages. New Brunswickers are reminded to have everything they need for at least 72 hours following a storm. This includes preparing an emergency kit for home and car; knowing what to do during power outages; and knowing how to stay safe during an emergency.
An emergency kit should include food, water, batteries, a battery-powered radio, first-aid supplies and any special items such as prescriptions, infant formula and equipment for people with disabilities.
