* through this evening

* reports of flooded roads continue as the mild temperatures and
  heavy rainfall on wednesday lead to rapid snowmelt with some
  roads being closed and culverts being damaged.

* ice had broken up and was moving on the rivers especially the
  saint john, aroostook and piscataquis rivers. an ice jam remains
  on the aroostook river at fort fairfield. all streams and rivers
  continue rise steadily including the mattawamkeag and penobscot
  rivers. colder temperatures expected today into tonight will
  slow the rising waters.

* 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...

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.
