Much of the flooding is taking place in a wide area from Edmunston in the north to the small communities down river from Fredericton. In the provincial capital, government buildings, schools and many businesses were shut down and more than 50 roads were closed.
Rising waters are expected to hit the record level in Fredericton this morning and surpass the 1973 level in Maugerville on Friday.
