Flooded Bridge On The St. John River

Detailed Description

The USGS gages the St. John River at Fort Kent, Maine at Station 01014000. A major flood in 2008 was the highest flow measured at this station, based on record going back to the 1920s. This photo shows the International Bridge in Ft. Kent, right at the water surface of the flooded river. That flood peaked at 183,000 cfs, much higher than the previous peak around 150,000 cfs.
