New N.B. flood worry: boil water advisory in action

Several New Brunswick communities along the St. John River have been placed under boil water advisories due to this week's flooding.

But there was some good news as emergency officials said that water levels are on the decline on Saturday, along the upper reaches of the St. John River. However, the crest is moving downstream, causing problems in Sheffield and Jemseg, two communities south of Fredericton.

Motorists were also warned to watch out for moose on the highways as the animals may be heading for higher ground.
