1012 PM EDT Thu Apr 17 2014

... The Flood Warning remains in effect until 500 am EDT Friday for
extreme southwestern Penobscot County...

* at 900 PM EDT Thursday law enforcement in Penobscot County report
some improvement during the evening hours with the cooler
temperatures but are not confident that additional problems will
not redevelop.

* The Lincoln street bridge is closed in Dexter as a culvert let go
and caused significant damage to the Road earlier today. Due to
the high water levels there is the possibility that additional
flooding could occur with little or no notice or that other
culverts could be pushed up and release water.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central Maine and northern Maine... including
the following areas... in east central Maine... central
Penobscot... northern Penobscot and southern Penobscot. In
northern Maine... northeast Aroostook... Northwest Aroostook and
southeast Aroostook.

* Until 8 am EDT this morning

* ice was moving on the Saint John river through Madawaska toward
grand ilse. Much of river was open outside this ice movement all
the way down into Hamlin. The ice could become locked up for a
time near grand ilse which would lead to water backing up quickly
in a short period of time. Minor flooding is possible.

* Elsewhere, river and stream levels are still running very high
with the mattwawmkeag river in Mattawamkeag out of its banks and
flooding is occurring in that region. The Penobscot and
Piscataquis rivers as well as the Stillwater river are receding
and below flood stage.

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.
