A large ice jam broke into two blocks in the upper St. John River and began moving. Water levels began going down along the river at Perth-Andover yesterday afternoon. 

Water levels in Fredericton, Maugerville, Jemseg, Grand Lake, Sheffield-Lakeville Corner and Quispamsis are forecast to stay above flood stage over next two days.
