My hometown of Fredericton is moving into a state of emergency with the flood waters rising quickly along the Saint. John River. The River is expected to hit above 8 meters today and is expected to exceed the levels of the Flood of '73.
The flood this year has caused great havoc on homes, many of which in Maugerville are currently flooded, businesses (most of downtown Fredericton is flooded as water has spilled into the roadways), schools (everyone is closed), and of course the wildlife who are trying to get to higher ground.
