Mild winter reduces springtime flood risk in Maine

A mild winter is giving emergency management officials one less thing to worry about: The spring flooding risk is reduced in New England.

There’s a lower-than-average risk of ice jams causing river backups and flooding in most of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, the National Weather Service said. There’s still some concern about a few rivers in far northern Maine, however.

For the most part, “the ice jam threat is really gone for the season,” said Tom Hawley, hydrologist with the weather service in Gray, Maine.
