Fredericton and Gagetown both hit the flood stage in New Brunswick on Monday.

Gagetown, a village on the west bank of the St. John River in Queens County, N.B., is forecast to exceed flooding levels until at least Thursday, according to the province's five-day forecast for the lower St. John River.

Fredericton's forecast shows it will return to lower than flood levels by Tuesday.

No other communities by the river will hit the flooding stage in the next five days.

It's still early days on New Brunswick's flooding season. Last week, Saint-Hilaire became the first community forecast to reach flooding stage in 2022.
