Fire and Emergency Services – Newfoundland and Labrador (FES-NL), is urging residents and visitors to the Town of Badger to take necessary precautions in light of an ice jam advisory by the Department of Environment and Conservation.
Residents are advised to avoid the lower end of Badger Brook and Little Red Indian Brook until further notice, as water and ice conditions in the area are potentially dangerous. These brooks flow directly into the Exploits River.
FES-NL says people, either travelling on foot or by snowmobile, should pay particular attention to where they are travelling and avoid the areas of the lower end of Badger Brook and Little Red Indian Brook throughout the coming days.
FES-NL, in conjunction with the Town of Badger and other provincial government departments, is continuing to monitor the situation and will provide further advisories as necessary.
