  due to flooding.

* ice continues to move on the saint john river with much of river
  now showing open water. there is still solid ice south of van
  buren to hamlin with some open water. at this time, river levels
  continue to rise slowly. the aroostook and piscataquis rivers
  are open with some ice flowing through and river levels running
  high but now are receding.

* the mattawamkeag and penobscot rivers are still rising but
  showing signs of slowing down due to the colder temperatures.
 
* the threat of flooding continues and 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.
