Flood Watch

The New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization says water levels have surpassed flood stage in some parts of the province.

Spokesman Robert Duguay says water levels on the Saint John River in the Fredericton area peaked just above flood stage Thursday night.

Duguay says he expects water levels will start to slowly fall over the coming days.

He says the only report of property damage has been in the Saint-Leonard area of northwestern New Brunswick, where an ice jam caused one basement to flood earlier this week.
