AUGUSTA, Maine —Maine’s River Flow Advisory Commission said there is an above-normal flood potential this spring.
“We’re looking at a later than normal spring, with the highest potential for flooding in about two to four weeks,” said Robert Lent, with the Maine office of the U.S. Geological Survey, said in a statement.
Lent said he expected the normal flood potential to begin in mid-April.
“Statewide, we are at about normal for streamflow and groundwater,” Nicholas Stasulis with the USGS said in a statement. “The snow is not at the point it was last year as far as readiness to melt, so we have not seen a lot of recharge in ground water yet.”
It is never safe to drive through floodwater.
