Record Staff – The Sherbrooke Municipal Civil Security Organization (OMSC) is keeping an eye on the level of the Saint-François River. Accumulation of snow on the ground and the thickness of the ice cover has prompted the OMSC to increase its vigilance because of the likelihood of rising floodwaters of different streams. The milder temperatures expected for the next few days indicate that the thaw period will begin shortly. For the moment, the river can absorb the amount of water that will be generated by the snow melt, but the situation and quantities could vary rapidly if the expected rainfall increases.
