The latest storm to hammer our region brought evacuations, road washouts, power outages and more but the current situation is described as pretty much stable.
That’s according to Robert Duguay of the New Brunswick Emergency Measure Organization who says that they are still watching a few isolated cases in Miramichi and in Charlotte County where there’s still some concern about the water levels.
“The worst is probably behind us. What we have is damaged roads in different areas, mostly in the southern part of the province, and the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure is working to continue assessments and to undertake all the necessary repair work that needs to be done to re-establish the important communication links in the roads affected by the storm,” says Duguay.
We still invite residents to report any cases, any concern regarding the water levels. They can report that to 1-800-561-4034.”
The province has opened a Damage Report Line for those affected by this weekend’s rainfall.
You can report your damages by calling 1-888-298-8555 or online by clicking here.
New Brunswickers are reminded to also contact their insurance companies immediately to report damage.
The Department of Environment and Local Government says it will also provide free water testing for residents affected by flooding.
