Alert Heavy Rainfall Advisory 25 June 2014

New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization, 1-800-561-4034.

FREDERICTON (GNB) – The Department of Public Safety's Emergency Measures Organization today issued the following heavy rainfall advisory:

Environment Canada is forecasting rainfall for today and continuing into Thursday, June 26, with the heaviest rainfall expected in southern parts of the province. More than 50 mm of rain is forecast for the southern regions, with up to 75 mm possible in some areas. The heaviest rain is expected during the day Thursday.

New Brunswickers are reminded to be prepared in the event of an emergency or power outage.

Homeowners who have experienced flooding during heavy rain storms in the past through localized flooding should take all necessary precautions, including clearing debris from drains to allow for effective drainage.

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.

Significant rainfall brings the risk of power outages and hazardous driving conditions. Motorists should adjust to driving conditions.

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, battery-powered radio, first-aid supplies and any special items such as prescriptions, infant formula and equipment for people with disabilities.

For more advice and to download an emergency preparedness guide, visit the Get Prepared website. To prepare for an outage, visit the NB Power website. A list of weather warnings is available from Environment Canada online.

Residences impacted by flooding|
If your home or business has been damaged by flood waters you should register with Service New Brunswick by calling 1-888-298-8555 or online. The deadline to register flood damage is May 15.

Impacted residents should also record details of any damage with photos or video, if possible. Contact your insurance agent immediately and keep any receipts for repairs completed.

Health and safety teams continue to complete inspections throughout the province. To ensure your property gets inspected it is recommended you register with Service New Brunswick.

Flood clean-up information is available online.

Drinking water
Private water supplies affected by flooding should not be used until they have been tested. You should wait 10 days after the flood waters have receded away from the well and get your water tested. If your test indicates there is no contamination, you may resume regular use of your water. If test results indicate a bacterial contamination, you will have to chlorinate your well.

Information on water well testing is available online.

Important health information is also available online.

Additional information

Safety information

  • People living or working along streams, tributaries and rivers are asked to be on the alert for ice movement and the possibility of ice-jam formation resulting in rapid water-level increases.
  • A change in weather conditions could lead to flooding in areas where drainage systems are blocked by ice and snow.
  • Individuals living or working in areas that are prone to flooding should remain aware and take proper precautions to safeguard their homes and possessions.
  • Because of the deterioration of ice covers it is now unsafe to cross waterways on foot, snowmobiles and ATVs.
  • Residents should avoid using boats or kayaks on open water as currents are fast, may be carrying debris and the water is cold.
  • Residents are advised to review their personal flood plan and have an emergency kit on hand.
