Heavy Wind and Rain Warning

Residents reminded to be cautious during heavy rain and wind event

The City is reminding residents that wind and rainfall warnings remain in effect from Environment Canada, with wind gusts expected to reach up to 90km per hour, and rainfall amounts of up to 110mm in Saint John beginning Wednesday afternoon and continuing overnight and into Thursday morning.

In addition, temperatures are expected to quickly drop on Thursday morning resulting in the potential for a flash freeze scenario and very icy conditions.  This weather event also has the potential to cause flash flooding, road washouts and closures, downed trees, and power interruptions. Residents should be cautious in and around coastal areas.

Motorists are reminded to reduce driving speeds, keep headlights on, observe all posted signage and barricades and avoid driving through any areas that are covered in water.

The City appreciates the public’s attention and reminds everyone to stay safe and check on neighbours, family and friends.
