Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 10:00 PM EDT on April 15, 2014

Expires 3:45 PM EDT on April 16, 2014


The National Weather Service in Caribou Maine has issued a

* Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams in...
northern Penobscot County in east central Maine...
this includes the cities of... Millinocket... Lincoln... Howland...
Piscataquis County in north central Maine...
this includes the cities of... ripogenus... Mount Katahdin...
Guilford... Greenville... Dover-Foxcroft... Brownville Junction...
Baxter St park...
northwestern Washington County in southeast Maine...
this includes the city of Vanceboro...

* until 345 PM EDT Wednesday

* at 945 PM EDT rivers were rising rapidly due to snow melt and
rainfall. Numerous rivers within the warned area are expected to
reach flood stage later tonight and tomorrow morning. Ice jams are
possible and may cause flash flooding. Law enforcement has already
reported some minor flooding.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
All interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Excessive runoff from rapid snow melt and rainfall will cause
elevated levels on rivers... small streams and ponding of water on
country roads and farmland along the banks of Brooks and streams.
Flooding may damage roads and create serious hazards to motorists.

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.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding. If flooding is observed act quickly. Move up to
higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to
flooding when water begins rising.

the threat of moderate to heavy rain to the region this evening
into tonight with continued mild temperatures and snow melt in
advance of the front. The threat of ice jam flooding will
persist through Wednesday while river levels continue to rise
and ice movement continues.

* 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...

flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
