...The National Weather Service in Gray has issued a flood warning
for the following rivers in Maine

  Kennebec River At Augusta affecting Kennebec County

.The Kennebec River at Augusta has risen above flood stage again this morning. Water continues to back up behind an ice jam downstream of Hallowell. It is expected that the water will fluctuate due to the ice jam and tides for the next couple of days before finally dropping
below flood stage for good. Ice jams are very unpredictable. People
living and working along the river from Augusta downstream should
remain alert for rapid fluctuations in water level.

road is safe for travel. Turn around, dont drown!
