More than 100 homes and businesses have been evacuated in northern Maine amid fears of the worst flooding in more than 100 years.
At least three inches of rain, combined with melting snow, has pushed the St. John River five feet above flood stage. The result is flooding in the town of Fort Kent, Maine, across from Canada. And they could get a whole lot more depending on whether the levee protecting the downtown area holds. Businesses have all been evacuated and about 600 people have been evacuated from their homes.
Flood warnings have also been issued across the river in Canada.
The International Bridge has been closed amid fears that the raging waters could drag it down. Maine's governor describes it as "ready to wash away."
