Water levels in the St. John River basin have dropped but the province's Emergency Measures Organization said Tuesday the flood risk has not passed.

Karl Wilmot, co-ordinator of the province's River Watch program, said he expects warmer weather this week will melt ice jams in a couple of places in the province.

Officials are monitoring jams on the Nashwaak River near the Marysville Bridge and on the Southwest Miramichi River at Norad Bridge. They are also watching the most serious jam on the Restigouche River, near Campbellton.

Water is on the road in Jemseg, Grand Lake and McGowan's Corner.

Wilmot said the water is expected to recede in those areas in the next 48 hours.
